Reliable Acrylonitrile Quantification of in-Service Acrylonitrile Butadiene Elastomers – coupled Analysis Techniques vs. classic Methods

The acrylonitrile content is a key characteristic of acrylonitrile butadiene rubbers (NBR). This paper describes the quantification of acrylonitrile of in-service NBR with several established analytical methods including the nitrogen determination according to Kjeldahl, the correlation with the glass transition temperature via differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) experiments and the analysis by attenuated total reflection infrared […] more...

Part II: Application to Elastomer Couplings

Lifetime Prediction with nonlinear Damage Accumulation based on Material Stressing

The lifetime prognosis method for elastomer components through nonlinear damage accumulation of material stressing introduced in [1] is applied to elastomer couplings in this article. The hysteresis loops recorded in dynamical part tests are used to derive the development of damage progress and the damage induced material behavior. The method is calibrated by the damage […] more...

Das Bedienen der Dosieranlagen im Silikonspritzguss wird sicherer. Ein in Kooperation von Anlagen- und Rohstoffhersteller entwickeltes Barcodesystem unterscheidet zuverlässig die Silikon-Komponenten. Das System ist offen und lädt auch andere Rohstoffanbieter ein, ihre Fässer entsprechend auszustatten.

Fasserkennung per Standard-Barcode im Silikonspritzguss

Drum identification with standard barcode increases operating safety in silicone injection molding

Ungeplante Anlagenstillstände sind das, was Kunststoffverarbeiter möglichst vermeiden wollen. Ein Ausfall kann maschinenseitige Ursachen haben, kann jedoch auch auf menschlichen Irrtümern begründet sein. Auch in etablierten Prozessen kann es dazu kommen, dass im Spritzguss die Silikon-Komponenten-Fässer verwechselt werden. Für ein sicheres Erkennen der Fässer sorgt nun ein Barcode-System, das als offener Standard angeboten wird. more...

Stress-Strain Curves of BR, NBR and SBR

Synchrotron WAXS Studies of stretched Natural and Synthetic Rubber Networks showing an Upturn in Stress-Strain Curves*

Natural rubber (NR) displays very distinct stress-strain curve with an upturn in the stress at high elongations while most synthetic rubbers do not. This behavior has been associated with strain-induced crystallization. Here we show that three non-crystallizing weak synthetic rubbers, i.e. BR, NBR and SBR, could be reinforced in such a way that their stress-strain […] more...

Thermal oxidative aging

Characterization of Stress Relaxation of cured EPDM using Chemiluminescence

Stress relaxation is a limiting factor for elastomers used for seals. However, the mechanism of stress relaxation is not fully understood because of the complexity of influencing parameters like temperature, chemicals, stress etc.. From this reason a new method is developed to characterize the thermal oxidation process under deformation using chemiluminescence (CL). An increase in […] more...
