Standard Test Methods for Rubber Products-Chemical Analysis

Scope

1.1 These test methods cover the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the composition of rubber products of the "R" family (see 3.1). Many of these test methods may be applied to the analysis of natural and synthetic crude rubbers.

1.1.1 Part A consists of general test methods for use in the determination of some or all of the major constituents of a rubber product.

1.1.2 Part B covers the determination of specific polymers present in a rubber product.

1.1.3 The test methods appear in the following order:

Part A. General Test Methods:Sections
Rubber Polymer Content by the Indirect Method11-13
Determinations and Report for the General Method14 and 15
Density16
Extract Analysis17-26
Sulfur Analysis27-33
Fillers Analysis34-40
Ash Analysis41-51
Part B. Determination of Rubber Polymers52-58

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in 31.4.5, 31.6, 37.4.2, 38.4.2, 45.1.3, 53.2.3.5, 54.4.2 and 56.5.3; and X1.3.3 and X2.4.1.6.
