How to select a universal test machine for rubber and elastomers

Configuring test equipment for elastomer and rubber is a three step process. The first step is to gather all the information about your test sample and the test requirements including sample material properties, specimen dimensions and forms and to define the test data you require from testing. What are the different elastomer and rubber material forms and types that you plan to test? Are you testing aerospace elastomer, aluminum on rubber, biomedical rubber, ceramic particulate reinforced rubber composites, coated yarns rubber, coating, compounds, cord rubber composite, dental elastomerics, elastomer foam yarn, elastomeric coating, elastomeric joint sealants, elastomeric textiles, elastomers and ceramics, elastomeric urethane, fabric to rubber, foam rubber, glass, label on rubber, laminated fabric, latex foam, metal rubber, natural rubber reinforced, o rings rubber, plastic coating on a rubber substrate, polychloroprene rubber, polyester, polymer rubber composites, polyurethane elastomer, reinforced elastomer, rubber adhesive, rubber cement, rubber coated fabrics, rubber composite, rubber elastomer, rubber polyurethane, rubber properties, rubber steel, rubber test fabric, rubber to plastic, rubber to polypropylene, rubber to rubber, rubber to steel, rubber to textile, rubber wire, rubber wood, sandwich panel polymer rubber, silicone, soils and rubber, sponge rubber, styrene butadiene rubber, synthetic, thermoplastic elastomers, tire cord to rubber, urethane elastomerics, or vulcanized rubber? What are the different types of elastomer and rubber based product designs do you plan to test?Are you testing rubber adhesive tape, antivibrational car mounting, rubber balls, bead wire rubber, rubber belts, bonded rubber hose, bridge bearing, button, elastomer compound, rubber coupons, dampers seismic, diaphragms, rubber dogbone, double lap shear, elastomer finger implant, engine mount, flooring, rubber gasket, rubber gloves, hockey pucks, rubber hose, joint sealants, elastomer journal, metal bonded rubber pads, microtensile, rubber molds, rubber o rings, plate, products, rigid substrate, roofing, rubber coated fabric, rubber cord, rubber fiber, rubber film, rubber foam gasket, rubber slab mold, rubber tape, rubber seal, sheets, rubber shoe, soles, strap, surfaces, elastomer thread, rubber tire, unconfined compression rubber, vibration damper, or rubber wheels?

What are the different variations of rubber tests do you need to perform? Examples include 180 degree peel test, 3 point bend test, 90 degree bend test, 90 degree peel test, adhesion strength, adhesion tensile, application, astm adhesion, astm double lap shear, astm peel strength, astm shear bond, astm spring rate, astm tack test, astm tensile elongation, bending test for rubber, biaxial testing elastomers, bonding strength, coefficient of friction cof, compression foam rubber, compression set, compression strength rubber, compression test silicone rubber, compressive stress of rubber, crack growth of vulcanized rubber, double shear, dynamic compression test rubber, dynamic properties of elastomers, dynamic spring constant, elastomer compression deflection, elastomer tensile, elastomer torsion, elongation at break rubber, equibiaxial tension, extension, fatigue crack growth rubber, fatigue test rubber, flexural strength test setup for rubber, flexure modulus of elastomer, foam rubber compression test, how to test rubber shear modulus, interlaminar adhesion, lap shear, modulus of elasticity, multiaxial, peel adhesion, peel strength test rubber, planar tensile shear, poissons ratio, properties, pull out, pull test, rubber adhesion, rubber and elastometer tear, rubber bending, rubber bonding, rubber shear tensile, rubber tensile strength, shear modulus, shear strength, static load rubber, stress strain, t peel, tear strength, tensile test, tensile testing, tension bond, testing, torsion, uniaxial, and youngs modulus. The second step is to establish your test method. Do you have an established test method? Standards organizations such as ASTM and ISO can help you define test equipment details and can help confirm equipment selection. If you are unfamiliar with mechanical testing methods then industry standard test methods provide important structure. They are available from organizations such as ASTM, ISO and CEN.
