Standard Test Methods for Rubber Cements


1.1 These test methods cover tests to measure the properties of adhesives, commonly called rubber cements, that may be applied in plastic or fluid form and that are manufactured from natural rubber, reclaimed rubber, synthetic elastomers, or combinations of these materials. All tests are not to be considered as applicable to a particular type of adhesive nor is every test included that may be applicable to a particular type. The tests do provide standard procedures for evaluating the more important properties of the usual adhesives ordinarily classed as rubber cements.

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

1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Significance and Use

These tests are used as a means of classifying, evaluating, and controlling cement compositions. Adhesion strength in tension, shear, and in a peeling mode are necessary where rubber materials are used in various engineering applications where forces are encountered both normal to the adhesion plane and parallel to the plane of the adhesive interface.
