Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
The electrical behavior of rubber products used in particular applications is important for a variety of reasons such as safety, static changes, current transmission, etc. This test method is useful in predicting the behavior of such rubber products.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of volume resistivity of rubbers used in electrically conductive and antistatic products.
1.2 This test method assumes that the surface conductivity is negligible compared with the conductivity through the specimen.
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.
