New Test Method for Determining Compatibility of Personal Lubricants with Polyurethane Condoms

1. Scope

The formulation of the test methods, definitions, specifications, practices, and classifications pertaining to rubber, rubber products, and systems and services appropriate to rubber technology. Tires, insulated wire and cable, electrical protective equipment, and insulated tape are excluded since they are the responsibility of other ASTM Committees.

The Committee shall encourage research concerning the properties of such materials, products, and systems. Both standardization and research activities will be coordinated with other relevant Committees.


condoms; polyurethane; personal lubricants


This test method covers procedures used to detect a shift in physical properties of polyurethane condoms after immersion in a personal lubricant. Personal lubricants are lubricants such as liquids or gels that are applied by the consumer at the time of condom use.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
