Research Report RR:D11-1078
This report describes an interlaboratory study to establish precision statements for ASTM D5902. A test program was completed to measure the residual unsaturation in HNBR by iodine number and infrared spectrophotometry. This report deals with the iodine number approach only. Seven laboratories tested three different HNBR samples with unsaturation levels of <1%, approximately 2% and approximately 5% were used. The iodine results were measured in duplicate on two difference days.
