ASTM D1414 TESTING FIXTURE

These test methods provide acceptable procedures for quality control purposes and for the determination of engineering characteristics. The equipment consists of two pulleys which  stretch the O-ring to failure. To minimize the local stresses induced in the sample due to frictional forces, the standard provides that a spool must rotate …

ASTM D1329 TESTING FIXTURE

This method describes the temperature retraction procedure for rapid assessment of crystallization effects. In addition, it serves to compare the properties of the viscoelastic rubber materials at low temperatures and gummy. This method is very useful to make a selection of materials suitable for low-temperature service. A small sample of …

ASTM D395 TESTING FIXTURE

This test methods is useful for the test of rubber that should be used in applications in which the rubber will be subjected to compressive stresses in air or liquid media. For example in machinery mountings, vibration dampers, and seals. Two test methods are provided and covered in the standard …
