The variety of rubber polymers and their applications is vast, a testing program is usually based around a target market/application. Completely defining a rubber product is possible but the variety of application environments and chemicals that come into contact with these products would keep a lab busy for a long time (we wouldn't argue if you wanted everything under the sun tested). Clear definition of the intended use with the associated conditions and contaminants is far more practical.
Then comes the process of breaking the rubber down into the sets of numbers needed by the target market. Accurate and clear results may be the only part of your product a decision maker sees and we endeavour to make the information about your product clear, useful and presentable.
