Significance and Use
This practice is useful for the examination of rubber compounds or products for the presence of chemicals that prevent or greatly reduce degradation due to oxygen, ozone, or other agents.
This practice is suitable for quality assurance, factory control, and research and development applications.
1.1 This practice covers the detection and identification by thin-layer chromatography of antidegradants (antioxidants, antiozonants, and stabilizers) that may be present in raw rubber or rubber products. Analysis for other types of antidegradants is possible as long as the requirements of the practice are met.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
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.
