Standard Test Method for Rubber Deterioration by Heat and Air Pressure
|Publication Date:||11 November 1999|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
This test method describes a procedure to determine the influence of elevated temperature and air pressure on the physical properties of vulcanized rubber. The results of this test may not give an exact correlation with service performance since performance conditions vary widely. The test may, however, be used to evaluate rubber compounds on a laboratory comparison basis. It will be most applicable to performance under conditions of increased temperature and air pressure.
NOTE 1 - For evaluating rubber vulcanizates under less severe conditions that more nearly approach natural aging, the use of Test Methods D 573 and D 865 is recommended.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
