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.

These types of RPA test measurements helped motivate the development of ASTM D Part A in the late s for measuring these rheological differences within the linear viscoelastic region. These new curemeters were rotorless in design, much more precise, could measure dynamic properties for the first time and required much less time to complete the test. Part 2 of 2 By John S. 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.

He has consulted, presented technical papers or given seminars in over 38 countries. Marcel Dekker,p. This short test can be effective in preventing this problem from happening. 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.

Testing Standards List

There is only a minimal cost to modify an RPA for testing liquids. 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.


It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 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.

So this is another method for quantifying the extent of completion for the silanization reaction.

White,Academic Press, p. Print 1 2 3 4 5 page sstarting from page current page. However, the accuracy of the xstm viscoelasticity from low strain testing is necessary for successful applications of time-temperature superposition TTS or finite element analysis modeling.

One hundred and twenty-five years ago, rubber technology was much more of an art than a science. In fact, these same linear viscoelastic differences aetm also applied, using the Cox Merz rule, to measure shear thinning profiles for various mixed rubber compounds.

Also, with the programmable variable temperature analysis feature of the RPA, this instrument could also astn used as a cure simulator for thick article cures, such as tires or conveyor belts.

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. Studies comparing capillary rheometer measurements of quite different tire compounds carcass, tread, wire coat, black sidewall, apex, innerliner, etc.

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. The RPA was first introduced into the rubber industry in by Monsanto.

In the s, Dr. This particular test is sensitive enough to be used for testing raw elastomers, as well as mixed stocks giving a better characterization of the ultimate state of mix than Mooney stress relaxation can give. 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.

There was a great deal of art and tacit knowledge about rubber, but not a lot of science with good, quantitative rubber test methods.

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.

Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc. Stress relaxation tests can sometimes characterize very high molecular weight elastomers better than a conventional frequency sweep. 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.
