Flex Fatigue

Flex Fatigue

Flex fatigue helps characterize a material’s ability to withstand cyclical stresses and strains.

Adhesion Testing

Adhesion Testing

Adhesion testing can be utilized to characterize the strength of bonds between materials, coatings, and adhesives.

Tension

Tension

The test method detailed in this standard evaluates the tensile properties of thermoplastic elastomers and vulcanized thermoset rubbers.

Tear Resistance

Tear Resistance

This test method is used to evaluate the tear strength of common vulcanized rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers.

Specific Gravity

Specific Gravity

Used to identify specific rubber polymers that are present in a rubber product.

Sample Preparation and Conditioning

Sample Preparation and Conditioning

This practice covers a list of standard temperatures from which selection may be made for any specific test or test method.

Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA)

Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA)

This test method is used to measure viscoelastic properties of raw rubber as well as un-vulcanized rubber compounds.

Rebound Resilience

Rebound Resilience

This test method measures the percentage resilience of a rubber compound.

ODR

ODR

This test method determines the vulcanization characteristics of rubber compounds, using an oscillating disk cure meter.

O-Ring

O-Ring

These test methods describe the procedures for determining the physical properties of O-rings and changes in these properties due to aging.

Mooney Viscometer

Mooney Viscometer

The test methods in this standard measures Mooney Viscosity, the shearing torque resisting rotation of a cylindrical metal disk (or rotor) embedded in rubber within a cylindrical cavity.

MDR

MDR

This test method is used to determine the vulcanization characteristics of (vulcanizable) rubber compounds.

Heat Aging

Heat Aging

The accelerated aging test method evaluates the changes in physical properties of vulcanized rubber when exposed to elevated temperatures.

Durometer Hardness

Durometer Hardness

Hardness is measured when a force is applied to the sample using an indentor and under specific conditions.

Fluid Aging

Fluid Aging

This standard is used to evaluate how vulcanized rubber products, or other products coated with vulcanized rubber, respond to the exposure of liquids (i.e. oils, greases, fuels, etc.) for a continuous or intermittent period of time during use.

Flexible Cellular Materials (Sponge)

Flexible Cellular Materials (Sponge)

This specification covers flexible cellular rubber products known as sponge rubber and expanded rubber.

Flammability

Flammability

This test method is designed to differentiate the flame propagation characteristics of dense or cellular elastomeric compounds used in gaskets, setting blocks, shims, or spacers.

Electrical Testing

Electrical Testing

It is important to both understand the way electrical charge moves through a material as well as across the material surfaces to ensure a safe and effective end application.

Compression

Compression

The ability to compress elastomeric materials is often vital to application, with it being important to understand both static and dynamic compressive behavior.

Cold Testing

Cold Testing

Whether it be for specification compliance or finished material application, both temperature retraction and brittleness point can help characterize a material’s low temperature properties.

Ozone Exposure

Ozone Exposure

Accelerated ozone aging helps characterize a material’s vulnerability to cracking in applications where exposure to ozone gas is likely.

Abrasion

Abrasion

Abrasion testing is a great predictive tool that can be utilized to determine the wear characteristics of materials and potential impacts to overall performance in end application.
