Determining Tensile Strength of Rubber and Elastomers using Universal Testing Machine by ADMET

ASTM D412 (D 412) covers the tensile properties of thermoset rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers. The specification describes two test methods, A and B. Method A is common and can be performed on a universal testing machine (tensile testing machine). If you are going to perform this test, you should read the entire specification from ASTM. This is a quick summary by ADMET to decide if this test is right for you, and to point out what equipment you need to perform the test.
