Standard Test Method for Rubber—Deterioration by Heating in Air (Test Tube Enclosure)
|Publication Date:||15 August 2011|
This test method covers a procedure to determine the deterioration induced by heating rubber specimens in individual test tube enclosures with circulating air. This isolation prevents cross contamination of compounds due to loss of volatile materials (for example, antioxidants) and their subsequent migration into other rubber compounds (specimens). The absorption of such volatile materials may influence the degradation rate of rubber compounds.
