ERT extends ageing capabilities with a low temperature and climate chamber


In actual application, rubber products are often subjected to all different kinds of ageing. Some rubbers are better capable of withstanding some kinds of ageing than others, but in principle every rubber has its weak spot.


Within ERT we already had the possibility to perform various ageing tests on rubber materials, like hot-air, steam, light and weathering, ozone and chemical ageing. After our latest investment in a Weiss Climate Chamber type C 180/70/3, we are now also able to perform low temperature and humidity ageing. Another advantage of this climate chamber is the possibility to perform automized temperature cycle tests within a temperature range of -70°C to +180°C. Possible test we can now perform are:


  • Compression set at low temperature according to ISO 815-2
  • Stress-relaxation at low temperature according to ISO 3384-1, method A
  • Humidity ageing based on ISO 1817
  • Hardening effect during low temperature ageing
  • Cyclic temperature ageing within a temperature range of -70°C to +180°C





With this investment we are now even better capable of being of service to you with regard to the quality and life-time possibilities of your rubber products. If you want to know more about our ageing possibilities, please feel free to contact us:
