Significance and Use
These test methods provide acceptable procedures for quality control purposes and for the determination of engineering characteristics.
1.1 These test methods describe the procedures for determining the physical properties of O-rings and changes in these properties due to aging.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
