Rubber products, both Tyre & Non-Tyre goods, are used in indoor and outdoor application under various conditions. Some are expected to withstand atmospheric conditions (Oxygen, Ozone, Sunlight & UV), others under dynamic condition (flex fatigue, typical example is Tyre which goes thru million cycle of compression & deflection), still some other products need to withstand high temperature and / or in contact to oil & solvent (e.g. automotive components under the hood application).

While developing & manufacturing a rubber product all these factors are kept in mind while formulating the compound & curing of the products.

Let us see what are different factors which could be the cause of failure of rubber products during usage.

  2. b) Temperature of usage
  3. e) Dynamic application (Flex Fatigue)
