ASTM WK43217

    New Test Method for Dimensional Effects of Gaseous Hydrocarbon Environments on Elastomer Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D11.15 | Committee D11 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Determine the percent change in elastomeric materials resulting from exposure to gaseous environments. Dimensional measurements are made prior to and after conditioning in a standard test gas.

    This standard addresses natural gas industry need to have a method to determine elastomer performance characteristics using test gases that simulate operating conditions. Currently elastomers are specified using liquids which only addresses one potential operating condition. Research performed over several years has documented the swell characteristics of selected elastomer materials.
