Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
These test methods provide uniform methods for inspection and test of rubber hoses that can be referenced in hose specifications for various applications.
Uniform test methods make quality comparisons of hose easier and more meaningful, and are more economical particularly when the same rubber vulcanizates are used in different types, constructions, or sizes of hose.
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for inspection and test of all types and constructions of rubber hose.
1.2 In case of conflict between provisions of these test methods and those of detailed specifications or test methods for a particular hose, the latter shall take precedence.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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.
