Rubber is a critical material which is versatile in nature and extensively used for various domestic and industrial applications. The rubber is acquired from the plants,
but it is very soft in nature and cannot be used for heavy applications. Hence, in order to make it useful for rigorous industrial usage, the rubber is made hard with the help of vulcanization. Vulcanization is the process which makes the natural rubber hard by changing its chemical composition and molecular structure. Sulphur is added to the natural rubber during the process of vulcanization which makes it suitable and harder for further use. Rubber is mainly used to make machine components, industrial products, seals, gaskets and many more. The product is also used to make tires and other automotive components.
As rubber is utilized in all critical applications, it is necessary to use high-quality of the rubber only. This is possible only by using high-quality of testing equipments so that the products could last for a long time without damaging the quality of the products. It is the duty of the manufacturer to ensure the quality of the rubbers and related products to ensure that the product is best in quality. There is a variety of testing machines that are used to test the quality of the rubbers to ensure that only best quality of products is manufactured and delivered to the customers. Some of the testing devices that are used in the laboratories of rubber industries to test the quality include Din Abrasion tester, Shore Harness tester, Bennewart Flex Tester, and many more.
Abrasion Testing is the methodology that created erosion on the surface of the rubber product when the rubber is rubbed against a rough material. This causes a sort of erosion on the material surface that degrades or damage the quality of the rubbers. This creates a significant problem for the manufacturers to produce high quality of the product. Hence, it is necessary to measure the resistance provided on the material against abrasion with the help of high quality of DIN Abrasion Tester.
Measuring the hardness is another attribute which explains the quality and strength of the rubbers. This property of rubbers can be examined efficiently with the help of high quality of Shore Hardness Tester.
