This test method is intended for referee purposes, but may be used for quality control, research and development testing and comparison of different rubber samples in a standard formula.
This test method may also be used to obtain values for customer acceptance of rubber.
This test method is a revision of Test Methods D 3190 (prior to 1991), with 3-methyl thiazolidine thione-2 being substituted for ethylene thiourea (ETU), a suspected carcinogen.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the standard materials, test formulas, mixing procedures and test methods for evaluation and quality control testing of chloroprene rubbers (CR). CR can be generally classified according to the two types of polymerization modifiers used in their manufacture: sulfur modified types and mercaptan modified types.
1.2 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.
