Summary

This test measures the effect of dynamic compressive strains on the fatigue characteristics and the rate of heat generation from different rubber vulcanizates.

Test Details

The results of this test are often applied to research and development studies, as the wide variations in conditions mean no correlation between accelerated tests and actual-use service performance can be given.

Types of products / materials generally tested under this method in our laboratories:

  • Rubber materials
  • Tires

*Please Note: The information outlined above is to be used as reference for ASTM D623 Standard Test Methods for Rubber Property-Heat Generation and Flexing Fatigue In Compression. Please refer to ASTM International for full details and the most current version.
