Search book title Enter keywords for book title search. Brown, Marcel Dekker Inc. Rubber World — October From a joint study with the Rubber Manufacturers Association RMAit was found that higher strain test conditions with the RPA were necessary in order to distinguish important quality differences among quite different sources of natural rubber. Just running low strain tests with the RPA did not make these distinctions.

John Dick has over 39 years of experience in the rubber industry. Studies comparing capillary rheometer measurements of quite different tire compounds carcass, tread, wire coat, black sidewall, apex, innerliner, etc.

It is interesting to note that on September 13,Alpha Technologies received the Trilogy Award for the creation of the ODR in recognition as one of the top tire technological achievements in the 20th Century.

There is only a minimal cost to modify an Xstm for testing liquids. The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: Register for a trial account. Factory problem solving with non-linear viscoelasticity to solve Six Sigma problems In the late s, the RPA was found to be invaluable in quality programs such as Six Sigma in solving factory problems.

Eirich, Chapter 8 by A. The RPA is uniquely effective at directly measuring the viscous heating generated by an uncured compound when subjected to specified conditions of frequency and strain. Leipzig 19, In addition, high strain testing in the non-linear viscoelastic region proved very useful with raw rubber sources, as well.


This is particularly important when compounds are compared which contain carbon black vs. Rubber compounders then would make judgments on the quality of a mixed batch of a xstm compound based on all five of their senses.

Ferry, Viscoelastic Properties of Polymers, 3rd Ed. Overview of rubber process testing in a changing global economy. However, the accuracy of the linear viscoelasticity from low strain testing is necessary for successful applications of time-temperature superposition TTS or finite element analysis modeling. Because of the significantly shorter test cycles, the MDR has almost completely replaced the ODR, which has helped the rubber industry achieve its doubling in production productivity in the last 20 years.

The correlation of dynamic complex viscosity and viscous heating can be affected adtm the filler loading level, type of filler and the thermal conductivity of the rubber compound.

One hundred and twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. 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. In the s, Monsanto Instruments Group now Alpha Technologies introduced the first successful f6204, which was referred to as the ODR oscillating disc rheometer.

RPA messurements at steadily increasing strain amplitude found that the correlation coefficient constantly improved significantly with higher applied strains.

TPE and TPV viscosity and shear thinning profile comparisons are typically made by this new test method. These tests are used routinely throughout the rubber industry to insure that new mixed rubber stocks can provide the dynamic properties needed for rubber product performance, whether it is needed for tires, v-belts, golf balls, isolators, dampers, ashm or conveyor belts.

Linear viscoelasticity measurements were made atsm the RPA with the German Standard DIN 53 Part 2, using the Arrhenius equation to calculate different energy of activation values EA for rubber compounds with differing curative packages. 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. Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc. Goodrich, and later Uniroyal Goodrich Tire Co. 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.

There was a great deal of art and tacit knowledge about rubber, but not a lot of science with good, quantitative rubber test methods.

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. Because of length, it was not possible to publish the extensive figures that were included in this paper.

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.

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.

This standard test condition can be performed in only 2 minutes by the RPA in the factory. These flow properties are related to d604 processing.
