One hundred and twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. Please login to your authorized staff account to use this feature.

Because of d6024 significantly shorter test cycles, the MDR has almost completely replaced the ODR, which has helped the rubber industry achieve its doubling in production productivity in the last 20 years.

Also, with the programmable variable temperature analysis feature of the RPA, this instrument could also be used as a cure simulator for thick article cures, such as tires or conveyor belts. In the s, Monsanto Instruments Group now Alpha Technologies introduced the first successful curemeter, which was referred to as the ODR oscillating disc rheometer.

The correlation of dynamic complex viscosity and viscous heating can be affected by the filler loading level, type of filler and the thermal conductivity of the rubber compound.

In the late s, after much research and development, Monsanto Instruments now Alpha Technologies introduced a new generation of curemeters known as the MDR moving die rheometers. This is particularly important when compounds are compared which contain carbon black vs. Search book title Enter keywords for book title search.

Factory problem solving with non-linear viscoelasticity to solve Six Sigma problems In the late s, the RPA was found to be invaluable in quality programs such as Six Sigma in solving factory problems. This was applied to calculate cure equivalents in determining state of cure profiles in tire curing studies.


RPA messurements at steadily increasing strain amplitude found that the correlation coefficient constantly improved significantly with higher applied strains. This thermal ramp capability was standardized in ASTM D Part C, which has been used routinely to achieve better statistical test sensitivity to subtle differences in scorch times for compounds cured with different peroxide cure systems.

White,Academic Press, p. Are you sure you want to empty the cart? In fact, d66204 same linear viscoelastic differences were also applied, using the Cox Merz rule, to measure shear thinning profiles for various mixed rubber compounds.

These new curemeters were rotorless in design, much more precise, could measure dynamic properties for the first time and required much less time to ast the test. These flow properties are related to facory processing. Remember me for one month. So even though high strain testing is commonly conducted in the non-linear viscoelastic region, it was found to give superior statistical test sensitivity to real differences in mixed factory stocks, as well as raw rubbers.

These tests are used routinely throughout the rubber industry to insure that new mixed rubber stocks can provide the dynamic properties needed for rubber product performance, whether it is needed for tires, v-belts, golf balls, isolators, dampers, bushings or conveyor belts.

Just running low strain tests with the RPA did not make these distinctions. Because of length, it was not possible to publish the extensive figures that were included in this paper. Very early in the Six Sigma process, it was discovered that only the RPA tests, especially when applying higher strain amplitudes, could provide sufficient statistical test sensitivity by ASTM D to detect and provide the data for corrective actions for downstream quality problems involving mixed stocks in the factory.

Brown, Marcel Dekker Inc. Directly measuring viscous heating and heat buildup with the RPA Special methods were developed using the RPA to directly measure the viscous heating of a rubber compound that would result from processing a given uncured rubber compound in the factory, as well as also measuring atm resulting heat buildup hysteresis of corresponding cured specimens which relate to asrm product performance.


There were no books found for the applied search filters. It is interesting to note that on September 13,Alpha Technologies received the Trilogy Award for the creation of the ODR in recognition as one of the top tire technological achievements in the 20th Century.

These types of RPA test measurements helped motivate the development asgm ASTM D Part A in the late s for measuring these rheological differences within the linear viscoelastic region.

The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: Rubber compounders then would make judgments on the quality of a mixed batch of a ashm compound based on all five of their senses. Eirich, Chapter 8 by A. He has consulted, presented technical papers or given seminars in over 38 countries.
