Standards [Withdrawn]

Rubber, vulcanized or thermoplastic - Determination of flex cracking and crack growth (De Mattia) (ISO 132:2011)

Title (German)

Elastomere oder thermoplastische Elastomere - Bestimmung der Rissbildung und Risswachstum (De Mattia) (ISO 132:2011)


This standard has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 45 "Rubber and rubber products" (Secretariat: DSM, Malaysia), Subcommittee SC 2 "Testing and analysis" (Secretariat: SIS, Sweden) in collaboration with the Standards Committee Materials Testing (NMP) at DIN, Working Committee NA 062-04-34 AA "Prüfung der physikalischen Eigenschaften von Kautschuk und Elastomeren" ("Test procedures for physical properties of rubber"). This International Standard specifies a method of test intended for use in comparing the resistance of vulcanized or thermoplastic rubbers to the formation and growth of cracks, when subjected to repeated flexing on the De Mattia type machine. For determination of crack growth, an artificial cut is made in the test piece to initiate cut growth.
