Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
5.2 This test method may be used for quality control in rubber manufacturing processes and for research and development testing of raw rubber and rubber compounds. This test method may also be used for evaluating compound differences resulting from the use of different compounding materials.
1.1 This test method covers the use of a rotorless oscillating shear rheometer for the measurement of the flow properties of raw rubber and unvulcanized rubber compounds. These flow properties are related to factory processing.
