Note: In the event of conflict between the English and domestic language, the English language shall take precedence.
Purpose. The purpose of this test is to evaluate the water impermeability of flexible expanded rubber and rubber-like materials to be used as water seals and gaskets.
Applicability. Typical applications include all expanded rubber and rubber-like materials that will be used for water sealing applications.
Remarks. Glass plates are used for material comparisons and qualifications. Representative substrates and part dimensions/design should be tested on appropriate test fixtures to evaluate the material performance in specific applications.
