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 the resulting heat buildup hysteresis of corresponding cured specimens which relate to dynamic product performance.

Test overcomes shortfalls of scorch measurements (Second of two parts): Part 2 of 2

Remember me for axtm month. The RPA was first introduced into the rubber industry in by Monsanto. In fact, these same linear viscoelastic differences were also applied, using the Cox Merz rule, to measure shear thinning profiles for various mixed rubber compounds. In the s, Dr. Stress relaxation tests can sometimes characterize very high molecular weight elastomers better than a conventional frequency sweep.

Leipzig 19, The RPA is uniquely effective at directly measuring the viscous heating generated by an uncured compound when subjected to specified conditions of frequency and strain. As a result, there are now d204 standard ISO and ASTM methods that have been established to date, and more new methods being developed for the immediate future. RPA dynamic properties of aerobic aged vulcanizates This RPA methodology was developed with parallel plate dies, because after these specimens are cured, they can actually be removed from the instrument and aged in an air oven for given time increments, after which these specimens are reinserted into the RPA to determine the change in dynamic properties from the established baseline.

So this is another method for quantifying the extent of completion for the silanization reaction. These instruments were so successful that over 10, of them were used throughout the world by the end of the s. Gold, Kolloid-Z, 74, Unlike the Mooney, which could only measure rubber viscosity and scorch time time until the onset of vulcanizationthe ODR could also measure cure rate, state of cure, and even reversion, as well.


In addition, high strain testing in the non-linear viscoelastic region proved very useful with raw rubber sources, as well. Because of the significantly shorter test cycles, the MDR has almost completely d204 the ODR, which has helped the rubber industry achieve its doubling in production productivity in the last 20 aastm. 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.

Melvin Mooney introduced the first practical viscometer for measuring the viscosity of a rubber stock. This standard test condition can be performed in only 2 minutes by the RPA in the factory.

Studies comparing capillary rheometer measurements of quite different tire compounds carcass, tread, wire coat, black sidewall, apex, innerliner, etc. TPE and TPV viscosity and shear thinning profile comparisons are typically made by this new test xstm. This testing was applied to both natural and synthetic rubber. One hundred d62204 twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. From a joint study with the Rubber Manufacturers Association RMAit was found that higher strain test conditions with the RPA were necessary in order to distinguish important quality differences among quite different sources of natural rubber.

RPA troubleshooting for eliminating injection molding non-fills with ASTM D6204.

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. This short test can be effective in preventing this problem from happening.

This RPA test methodology is applied to measuring the dynamic property changes brought about from oven post-curing of compounds based on specialty elastomers such as FKM, silicone and ACM, or the air-oven aging of compounds based on conventional general purpose elastomers such as natural rubber, BR and SBR.


The development of various RPA test methods and techniques occurred in three separate stages: 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.

John Dick has over 39 years of experience in the rubber industry. 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.

RPA messurements at steadily increasing strain amplitude found that the correlation coefficient constantly improved significantly with higher applied strains. 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 Dd6204.

Very early in the Six Sigma process, asfm was discovered that only the RPA tests, especially when d66204 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.

In addition, it was found that running the RPA tests at high strains was more effective at measuring carbon black structural differences that are imparted to rubber compounds. 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.
