Elastomer Testing


Examination of the compatibility between elastomers and lubricants

Static tests according to ISO 1817 and ASTM D 471 are conducted to determine material compatibility between elastomers and lubricants. These tests establish the alteration in the elastomer properties of hardness, volume, tensile strength and elongation at break. The results serve as a guide for the selection of elastomer–lubricant combinations.
