Long Term Instrumented Stress Relaxation


Test ID  
M-266

   
Description  
stress relaxation frames are now available for measuring force/stress decay over long periods of time. Rubber samples are placed into the compression relaxation frames, compressed to a predetermined strain and force decay is captured with a load cell over long time intervals.    
Options  
Testing can be performed at various temperatures as well as strains.  
Standards  
ASTM D6147  
Data  
Stress or modulus vs. time.  
Replicates (# of times this test is repeated)  
2  
Samples  
5 - prisms [details]

   

Application
 
This test is useful for determining retention of sealing stresses and long term performance of gaskets.
