Standard Method of Tension Testing of Vulcanized Rubber
|Publication Date:||1 January 1968|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
This method covers the effect of the application of a tension load to vulcanized rubber and similar rubber-like materials at room temperature and elevated temperatures. Covered are tests for tensile stress, tensile strength, ultimate elongation, and set. The method is not applicable to the testing of material ordinarily classified as ebonite or hard rubber.
This method starts with a piece taken from the sample and covers (1) the preparation of the specimens for tension testing, and (2) the tension testing of the specimens.
