ASTM Volume 09.01 Rubber, Natural and Synthetic -- General Test Methods; Carbon Black
Volume 09.01 contains tests and practices for evaluating rubber, rubber-like materials, and carbon black. Some general tests and practices fix standard procedures for performing chemical analysis, assessing processability, physical properties, aging and weathering effects, low temperature effects, and adhesion. Others evaluate compounding materials, carbon black, and synthetic rubbers, such as CR, IIR, IR, NBR, BR, and SBR. This volume also details standards on natural rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, and terminology.
Volume 09.02 features specifications, tests, and practices for evaluating rubber surgical and examination gloves; automotive and aeronautical rubber; packing, seals, and gasket materials; hose and belting; coated fabrics; latex foam, sponge, expanded cellular rubber, and tires.
It also provides standards on gaskets used in transportation applications, as well as standards related to commercial nonmetallic gaskets, enveloped gaskets, and laminate composite gasket materials (LCGM) for use with corrosion-resistant process equipment.
