Description / Abstract:

These test methods describe how capillary rheometry may be used to measure the rheological characteristics of rubber (raw or compounded). Two methods are addressed: Method A—using a piston type capillary rheometer, and Method B—using a screw extrusion type capillary rheometer. The two methods have important differences, as outlined in 7 – 10 and 11 – 14, respectively.

These test methods cover the use of a capillary rheometer for the measurement of the flow properties of thermoplastic elastomers, unvulcanized rubber, and rubber compounds. These material properties are related to factory processing.

Since piston type capillary rheometers impart only a small amount of shearing energy to the sample, these measurements directly relate to the state of the compound at the time of sampling. Piston type capillary rheometer measurements will usually differ from measurements with a screw extrusion type rheometer, which imparts shearing energy just before the rheological measurement.

Capillary rheometer measurements for plastics are described in Test Method D3835.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
