Physical Test Methods for Elastomers

by Roger Brown

Physical Test Methods for Elastomers Synopsis

This book provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of physical testing of elastomers (rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers) including mechanical, electrical, thermal and all aspects of durability. Elastomers are an important class of materials used in such products as tyres, seals and hose which have markedly different properties to other materials. The importance of testing of elastomers means that a comprehensive text on the subject is essential. The advantage over general materials testing books is being more specific while the advantage over general rubber technology books is that testing is dealt with in depth.

Physical Test Methods for Elastomers Press Reviews

This book compares many standard test methods for the determination of the short term mechanical properties (hardness, tension and compression), physical properties (electrical and thermal properties, permeability) and time dependent properties (dynamic stress and strain; creep, relaxation and set) of rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers. ... The book is primarily intended as a reference for those directly concerned with testing elastomers or for those indirectly involved in testing such as design engineers. (Margit Weltschev, Materials and Corrosion, Vol. 69 (7), July, 2018)
