Standard Test Methods for Rubber—Identification by Infrared Spectrophotometry
|Publication Date:||1 February 2010|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
These test methods cover rubber identification and arebased on infrared examination of pyrolysis products (pyrolyzates)and films.
These test methods are applicable to rubbers in the rawstate and, when compounded, both in the cured and uncuredstate.
Since it is customary in infrared spectrophotometry touse wavenumbers (cm−1) rather than Hertz (Hz), the unit forfrequency in the SI system, the former is employed throughoutthis test method.
This test method assumes that specimens and infraredspectra are
prepared and analyzed by experienced personneland that the
equipment is operated according to the manufacturer'sdirect
