Rheometer is a torque transducer. It ’ s basically used for determining the cure time of rubber compounds. To be very precise, it gives optimum cure time (t90) and scorch time (ts2) at a fixed temperature in the range of 140 to 180° C, 150° being the most common one. Optimum cure time (t90) is calculated from the maximum (MH) and minimum (ML) torque encountered during the test.

Test Method: ASTM D 1646 The rotor turns at a constant rate (2 rpm) inside a closed cavity containing the test piece so that a shearing action takes place between the flat surfaces of the rotor and the walls of the chamber. ML 1+4 at 100° C / 125° C ML 1+8 at 100° C / 125° C (e.g Butyl Rubber)

Rubber Processing Analyser The RPA meets the full range of testing requirements of the complete manufacturing process:

■Incoming polymer characterization

■ Incoming raw material test

■ Master batch testing

■ Final compound testing

■ Cured compound testing

The RPA measures the viscoelastic properties of polymers and elastomeric compounds providing comprehensive data on key parameters such as: Processability , Cure characteristics , Final cured properties.

This test is used to assess the quality of auto tubes. The natural rubber and butyl rubber tubes show lots of difference in air permeability.

The EPDM rubber 10 to 20 parts is blended with Butyl rubber to increase the dynamic splice life and to increase the productivity.

The test piece shall be a disc of uniform thickness may be between 0.25 mm to 4 mm

The minimum time between vulcanization and testing shall be 16 hrs.
