– Where the rubber industry gets its news first
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 fact, these same linear viscoelastic differences were also applied, using the Cox Merz rule, to measure shear thinning profiles for various mixed rubber compounds. RPA dynamic properties of aerobic aged vulcanizates This RPA methodology was developed with parallel plate dies, because after these specimens are cured, they can actually be removed from the instrument and aged in an air oven for given time increments, after which these specimens are reinserted into the RPA to determine the change in dynamic properties from the established baseline.
If you like to setup a quick demo, let us know at support madcad. Remember me for one month. Unlike the Mooney, which could only measure rubber viscosity and scorch time time until the onset of vulcanizationthe ODR could also measure cure rate, state of cure, and even reversion, as well.
It is the responsibility of the user ast, this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. There is only a minimal cost to modify an RPA for testing liquids. The RPA was first introduced into the rubber industry in by Monsanto. Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc.
John Dick has over 39 years of experience in the rubber industry. These direct measurements of viscous heating temperature rise with the RPA are very repeatable. Today, some 12, ASTM standards are used around the world atm improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. The correlation of dynamic complex viscosity and viscous heating can be affected by the filler loading level, type of filler and ashm thermal conductivity of the rubber compound.
Rubber World – October : Overview of rubber process testing in a changing global economy
The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: Gold, Kolloid-Z, 74, Rubber compounders then would make judgments on e6204 quality of a mixed batch of a rubber compound based on all five of their senses. It is interesting to note d62004 on September 13,Alpha Technologies received the Trilogy Award for the creation of the ODR in recognition as one of the top tire technological achievements in the 20th Century. Dick has authored over 80 journal and magazine publications, including five books on rubber technology.
Melvin Mooney introduced the first practical viscometer for measuring the viscosity of a rubber stock. So this is another method for quantifying the extent of completion for the silanization reaction.
TPE and TPV viscosity and shear thinning profile comparisons are typically made by this new test method.
Test overcomes shortfalls of scorch measurements (Second of two parts): Part 2 of 2
These instruments were so successful that over 10, of them were used throughout the world by the end s6204 the s. This thermal ramp capability was standardized in ASTM D Part C, which has been used routinely to ast better statistical test sensitivity to subtle differences in scorch times for compounds cured with different peroxide cure systems. This standard test condition can be performed in only 2 minutes by the RPA in the factory. Marcel Dekker,p.
Cousins Bayerand J. One hundred and twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. In the late s, after much research and development, Monsanto Instruments now Alpha Technologies introduced a new generation of curemeters known as the MDR moving die rheometers.
He has consulted, presented technical papers or given seminars in over 38 countries. Click here to download full list asfm books. FORMAT Single User Subscription Site License Subscription BOOKS All Books PACKAGES All Packages EDITION to PUBLISHER.
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.
This instrument allowed the rubber compounder to apply actual quantitative measurements to his process.
Land Use and Development. These new curemeters were rotorless in design, much more precise, could measure dynamic properties for the first time and required much less time to complete the test. Because of length, it was not possible to publish the extensive figures that were included in astn paper. These types of RPA test measurements 6d204 motivate the development of ASTM D Part A in the late s for measuring these rheological differences within the linear viscoelastic region.
Register for a trial account. In addition, it was found that running the RPA tests at high strains was more effective at measuring carbon black structural differences that are imparted to rubber compounds. This was applied to calculate cure equivalents in determining state of cure profiles in tire curing studies. White,Academic Press, p. In the s, Dr.
