Elastomers and rubbers are used in different industries for multiple scenarios for a long period of time. With the changing consequences and with the change in time, there has been a highly developed and advanced range of rubbers and elastomers that are easily available and used in different industries. The rubbers are versatile and highly elastic in nature and produce different types of products. The rubbers are also better from other materials as they are unaffected, economical and strong in nature.
The common requirement of rubber in different production houses for different applications has enhanced the demand for the products to an extended level. To fulfill the requirements of a vast number of people at a time, the manufacturers need to commence the production of the rubbers on a large scale. With an extensive production, there is a need for rigorous quality testing which can be performed using high-quality testing machines. It is one of the best ways that helps the manufacturers to test the quality and strength of rubbers.
Different Causes of Defects in Elastomers
Rubbers need to bear a lot of pressure during its actual usage which generates defects in the products. These forces include compression forces, tension forces, and impacts of environmental conditions, impact forces, crack initiation and many more. Out of the mentioned factors, tensile is the major reason that majorly explains the quality of the products. If the tensile strength of the product is not up to the mark, it will badly affect the quality of the rubbers and influence the working of the products. The testing instrument is used to test the amount of force or stretch a rubber can tolerate to its maximum before generating cracks.
How to Ascertain the Tensile Strength of Rubbers?
To measure the tensile strength of the rubbers, Computerised Universal Testing Machine is the best testing machine. It is necessary to make the rubber products tension proof and highly elastic. The testing machine creates tension on the sample and helps to measure the strength and reliability of the product.
To perform the test, first of all, the sample is cut in the shape of the dumbbell as mentioned in the standards to get best and accurate test results. The testing instrument is designed as per the standards that are introduced by various standardization authorities.
