Standard Test Methods for Rubber Hose for Automotive Air and Vacuum Brake System
|Publication Date:||10 May 1999|
|ICS Code (IT applications in industry):||35.240.50|
These test methods are intended for use in testing the conventional types of hose employed for the operation of air brake and vacuum brake systems,(Footnote 2) either on a single motor vehicle or as connecting or transmission lines in a combination of vehicles. The hose may be assembled with suitable metal couplings or may be as fabricated for use with detachable fittings. The term "rubber" as used in these test methods includes synthetic compounds as well as compounds of natural rubber.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
