|Publication Date:||10 December 2002|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
1.1 This test method describes the determination of plasticity and recovery of unvulcanized rubber by means of the parallel plate plastometer. Uncompounded, compounded, and reclaim rubber may be tested.
Note 1- ISO 2007 and D 3194 use a principle similar to this test method although the apparatus, test conditions, and procedure are different.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
