Standard Specifications for Flexible Cellular Materials—Latex Foam
|Publication Date:||1 November 2009|
These specifications,2 including test methods, apply to flexible cellular rubber products known as latex foam rubbers but do not apply to sponge and expanded rubbers. The base material used in their manufacture shall be natural rubber, reclaimed rubber, synthetic rubber, alone or in combination.
In case of conflict between the provisions of these general specifications and those of detailed specifications or test methods for a particular product, the latter shall take precedence. Reference to methods for testing cellular rubber products should specifically state the particular test or tests desired.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
NOTE 1-There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
2 These specifications together with Specification D1056 replace the former Tentative Methods of Testing Cellular Rubber Products (D552 - 46a T) and the Tentative Specifications for Cellular Rubber Products (D798 - 46a T), which were accordingly discontinued in 1949.
