    Abstract

    An expedient technique of reducing, significantly, membrane penetration errors and bedding errors at the platens is presented. This technique consists of coating the specimen/membrane and specimen/platen interfaces with a film of liquid rubber of appropriate thickness and properties. This film of liquid rubber is then squeezed into the interstices by a small seatting load/pressure before completion of curing. The effectiveness of this technique is demonstrated by a series of testing.
