ASTM's rubber standards are instrumental in specifying, testing, and assessing the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of a wide variety of materials and products that are made of rubber and its elastomeric derivatives. Rubber, which can either be synthetically produced or derived from the milky colloidal suspension found in the sap of some plants, exhibits unique properties that render it extensively useful in many applications and products. These rubber standards allow rubber manufacturers and end-users to examine and evaluate their material or product of concern to ensure quality and acceptability towards safe utilization.
