Test overcomes shortfalls of scorch measurements (Second of two parts): Part 2 of 2

Gold, Kolloid-Z, 74, RPA dynamic properties of aerobic aged vulcanizates This RPA methodology was developed with parallel plate dies, because after these specimens are cured, they can actually be removed from the instrument and aged in an air oven for given time increments, after which these specimens are reinserted into the RPA to determine the change in dynamic properties from the established baseline.

This particular test is sensitive enough to be used for testing raw elastomers, as well as mixed stocks giving a better characterization of the ultimate state of mix than Mooney stress relaxation can give.

If you like to setup a quick demo, let us know at support madcad. This RPA test methodology is applied to measuring the dynamic property changes brought about from oven post-curing of compounds based on specialty elastomers such adtm FKM, silicone and ACM, or the air-oven aging of compounds based on conventional general purpose elastomers such as natural rubber, BR and SBR. Dick has authored over 80 journal and magazine publications, including five books on rubber technology.

– Where the rubber industry gets its news first

Brown, Marcel Dekker Inc. Linear viscoelasticity measurements were made by the RPA with the German D62204 DIN 53 Part 2, using the Arrhenius equation to calculate different energy of activation values EA for rubber compounds with differing curative packages. Very early in the Six Sigma process, it was discovered that only the RPA tests, especially when applying higher strain amplitudes, could provide sufficient statistical test sensitivity by ASTM D to detect and provide the data for corrective actions for downstream quality problems involving mixed stocks in the factory.


It was used to test raw SBR as part of the U. Stress aetm tests can sometimes characterize very high molecular weight elastomers better than a conventional frequency sweep. In the late s, after much research and development, Monsanto Instruments now Alpha Technologies introduced a new generation of curemeters known as the MDR moving die rheometers.

In the s, Dr. Marcel Dekker,p.

These instruments were so successful that over 10, of them were used throughout the world by the end of the s. Melvin Mooney introduced the first practical viscometer for measuring the viscosity of a rubber stock. Testing liquid elastomers Using the RPA, techniques were developed in to test liquid rubbers such as polyurethanes, silicones, polysulfides and certain liquid rubber adhesive compounds. Cousins Bayerand J. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

He has consulted, presented technical papers or given seminars in over 38 countries.

Even though high strain testing is by definition in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it still provided better statistical test sensitivity in the factory to downstream quality problems that conventional low-strain RPA tests in the linear region of viscoelasticity could not detect.

TPE and TPV viscosity and shear thinning profile comparisons are typically made by this new test method. These direct measurements of viscous heating temperature rise with the RPA are very repeatable. In addition, it was found that running the RPA tests at high strains was more effective at measuring carbon black structural differences that are imparted to rubber compounds.

The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: Just running low strain tests with the RPA did not make these distinctions.

ASTM D6204

These flow properties are d6024 to facory processing. Rubber compounders then d624 make judgments on the quality of a mixed batch of a rubber compound based on all five of their senses. 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.


So even though high strain testing is commonly conducted in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it was found to give superior statistical test sensitivity to real differences in mixed factory stocks, as well as raw rubbers.

He was with B. So this is another method for quantifying the extent of completion for the silanization reaction. These tests are used routinely throughout the rubber ashm to insure that new mixed astmm stocks can provide the dynamic properties needed for rubber product performance, whether it is needed for adtm, v-belts, golf balls, isolators, dampers, bushings or conveyor belts. Goodrich, and later D62004 Goodrich Tire Co.

Today, some 12, ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. Eirich, Chapter 8 by A. Leipzig 19, No items in cart. Unlike the Mooney, which could only measure rubber viscosity and scorch time time until the onset of vulcanizationthe ODR could also measure cure rate, state of cure, and even reversion, as well.

As a result, there are now nine standard ISO and ASTM methods that have been established to date, and more new methods being developed for the immediate future.

Directly measuring viscous heating and heat buildup with the RPA Special methods were developed using the RPA asrm directly measure the viscous heating of a rubber compound that would result from processing a given uncured rubber compound in the factory, as well as also measuring the resulting heat buildup hysteresis of corresponding cured specimens which relate to dynamic product performance.

Published on February 9, 6: This short test can be effective in preventing this problem from happening. R6204 testing was applied to both natural and synthetic rubber.
