This standard test condition can be performed in only 2 minutes by the RPA in the factory. Because of aastm significantly astmm 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.

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 general purpose elastomers such as natural rubber, BR and SBR.


Even though high strain testing is by definition in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it still provided better statistical test sensitivity in the factory to downstream quality problems that conventional low-strain RPA tests in the linear region of viscoelasticity could not detect.

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.

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

These instruments were so successful that over 10, of them were used throughout the world by the end of the s.


Just running low strain tests with the RPA did not make these distinctions. This is particularly important when compounds are compared which qstm carbon black vs. As a result, there are now nine standard ISO and ASTM methods that have been established to date, and more new methods being developed for the immediate future.

Leipzig 19, This was applied to calculate cure equivalents in determining state of cure profiles in tire curing studies. Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc.

Melvin Mooney introduced the first practical viscometer for measuring the viscosity of a rubber stock.

Eirich, Science and Technology of Rubber, Ch. White,Academic Press, p. RPA messurements at steadily increasing strain d62004 found that the correlation coefficient constantly improved significantly with higher applied strains.

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

Directly measuring viscous heating and heat buildup with the RPA Special methods were developed using the RPA to directly measure the viscous heating of a rubber compound that would result from processing a given uncured rubber compound in the factory, as well as also measuring the resulting heat buildup hysteresis of corresponding cured specimens which relate to dynamic product performance.

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.

The RPA is uniquely effective at directly measuring the viscous heating generated by an uncured compound when subjected to specified conditions of frequency and strain.

Overview of rubber process testing in a changing global economy.

Also, with the programmable variable temperature analysis feature of the RPA, this instrument could also be used as a cure simulator for thick article cures, such as tires or conveyor belts. This short test can be effective in preventing this problem from happening. Rubber World — October It was used to test raw SBR as part of the U.

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 d6240.

Are you sure you want to empty the cart? There wstm a great deal of art and tacit knowledge about rubber, but not a lot of science with good, quantitative rubber test methods. This testing was applied to both natural and synthetic rubber.

From a joint study with the Rubber Manufacturers Association RMAit was found that higher strain test conditions with the RPA were necessary in order to distinguish important quality differences among quite different sources of natural rubber.

So this is another method for quantifying the extent of completion for the silanization reaction. One hundred and twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. Studies comparing capillary rheometer measurements of quite different tire compounds carcass, tread, wire coat, black sidewall, apex, innerliner, etc.

Land Use and Development. 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.

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.

Gold, Kolloid-Z, 74, In the s, the technology that went into the development of the MDR evolved into the RPA rubber process analyzer.
