    Significance and Use

    These test methods are useful in comparing stiffness of rubber materials in compression. They can be used by rubber technologists to aid in development of materials for compressive applications.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover two test procedures for determining the compression-deflection characteristics of rubber compounds other than those usually classified as hard rubber and sponge rubber.

    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.
