Oxidation Apparatus


Testing oxidation stability of elastomeres, rubber and miscellaneous plastics, such as cable coatings, is described in the German DIN 53 508 or DIN VDE 0472 as well as in IEC 811-1-2; (method: pressure chamber). This test simulates the ageing behaviour of materials in a short-term study.
Materials are exposed to pure oxygen at 70 or pressed air at 127 or 150 Deg C.

Testing oxidation stability of elastomeres,
rubber and miscellaneous plastics, such as
cable coatings, is described in the German DIN VDE 0472 as well as in IEC 811-
1-2; (method: pressure chamber). This test
simulates the ageing behaviour of materials in
a short-term study. Materials are exposed to
pure oxygen at 70°C, 21 bars or to air at 127°C
/ 150°C at 5.5 bars in a
pressure chamber. Mechanical properties, such
as tensile strength and hardness, are examined
before and after exposure.
