Summary

This test method comprises eight different tests, providing data for the development and control of rubber compounds:

  • Method A—Rubber Part Assembled Between Two Parallel Metal Plates
  • Method B—90° Stripping Test—Rubber Part Assembled to One Metal Plate
  • Method C—Measuring Adhesion of Rubber to Metal with a Conical Specimen
  • Method D—Adhesion Test—Post-Vulcanization (PV) Bonding of Rubber to Metal
  • Method E—90° Stripping Test—Rubber Tank Lining—Assembled to One Metal Plate
  • Method F—Rubber Part Assembled Between Two Parallel Convex-Shaped Metal Plates
  • Method G—Measuring Bond Durability for Rubber-to-Metal Bonded Components with a Double Shear Cylindrical Specimen
  • Method H—Measuring Bond Durability for Rubber-to-Metal Bonded Components with a Quadruple Shear Specimen

Test method most commonly used for:

  • While this test method can be applied to a wide range of rigid materials, metals are the most commonly used.
