Today, some 12, ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, zstm market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.

RPA troubleshooting for eliminating injection molding non-fills with ASTM D6204.

However, the accuracy of the linear viscoelasticity from low strain testing is necessary for successful applications of time-temperature superposition TTS or finite element analysis modeling.

Print 1 2 3 4 5 page sstarting from page current page. The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: Even though high strain testing is by definition in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it still provided 6d204 statistical test sensitivity in the factory to downstream quality problems that conventional low-strain RPA tests in the linear region of viscoelasticity xstm not detect.

Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc. This RPA test methodology is applied to measuring the dynamic property changes brought about from oven post-curing of compounds based on specialty elastomers such as FKM, silicone and ACM, or the air-oven aging of compounds based on conventional d204 purpose elastomers such as natural rubber, BR and SBR. Because of the significantly shorter test cycles, the MDR has almost completely replaced the ODR, which has helped the rubber industry achieve its doubling in production productivity in the last 20 years.


Remember me for one month. TPE and TPV viscosity and shear thinning profile comparisons are typically made by this new test method.

Very early in the Six Sigma process, it was discovered that only the RPA tests, especially when applying higher strain amplitudes, could provide sufficient statistical test sensitivity by ASTM D to detect and provide the data for corrective actions for downstream quality problems involving mixed stocks in the factory.

Cousins Bayerand J. As a result, there are now nine standard ISO and ASTM methods that have been d62204 to date, and more new methods being developed for the immediate future.

Studies comparing capillary rheometer measurements of quite different tire compounds carcass, tread, wire coat, black sidewall, apex, innerliner, etc. Factory problem solving with non-linear viscoelasticity to solve Six Sigma problems In the late s, the RPA was found to be invaluable in quality programs such as Six Sigma in solving factory problems. This thermal ramp capability was standardized in ASTM F6204 Part C, which has been used routinely to achieve better statistical test sensitivity to subtle differences in scorch times for compounds cured with different peroxide cure systems.

Eirich, Science and Technology of Rubber, Ch.

Because of length, it was not possible to publish the extensive figures that were included in this paper. So even though high strain testing is commonly conducted in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it was found to give superior statistical test sensitivity to real differences in mixed factory stocks, as well as raw rubbers.

Just running low strain tests with the RPA did not make these distinctions. FORMAT Single User Subscription Site License Subscription BOOKS All Books PACKAGES All Packages EDITION to PUBLISHER. Please login to your authorized staff account to use this feature. Marcel Dekker,p. This instrument allowed the rubber compounder to apply actual quantitative measurements to his process.

These instruments were so successful that over 10, of them were used throughout the world by the end of the s. Register for a trial account.

This standard test condition can be performed in only 2 minutes by the RPA in the factory. These flow properties are related to facory processing. Leipzig 19, This particular test is sensitive enough to be used for testing raw elastomers, as well as mixed stocks giving a better characterization of the ultimate state of mix than Mooney stress relaxation can give.

These tests are used routinely throughout the rubber industry to insure that new mixed rubber stocks can provide the dynamic properties needed for rubber product performance, whether it is needed for tires, v-belts, golf balls, isolators, dampers, bushings or conveyor belts. In the s, the technology that went into the development of the MDR evolved into the RPA rubber process analyzer.

Are you sure you want to empty the cart? In addition, high strain testing in the non-linear viscoelastic region proved very useful with raw rubber sources, as well. Enter your account email address to request a password reset:
