Tensile strength of rubber

Elastomer Research Testing BV is an independent and ISO 17025 accredited research and test laboratory which offers a wide range of methods to determine rubber properties, such as the tensile strength of rubber.

 

What is the tensile strength of rubber?

The tensile strength of rubber indicates how much force or stress a rubber material can withstand before breaking. The tensile strength of rubber is typically expressed as the amount of force in megapascals (10-25 MPa) or pounds per square inch (psi). During this test we pull the material up to the point of failure. This point of rupture is called the ultimate tensile strength.

 

Measuring the tensile strength of rubber

The determination of the tensile properties (ISO 37) gives more rubber properties during testing:

 

How do we test the stress-strain properties of rubber?

Stress-strain properties can be tested at standard laboratory temperature and at application-specific elevated temperatures up to 275°C. We determine all properties of rubber based on ASTM, DIN, EN, or ISO standards. Need another certification standard? Contact us.
