This SAE Standard specifies requirements for vulcanized rubbers in sheet form for use as standards in characterizing the effect of test liquids and service fluids. The annexes contain the standard reference elastomer formulas. The property changes of the SRE in contact with the indicated fluid under specified test conditions are the responsibility of the user. See 7.3 and Table 1. This standard is not designed to provide formulations of elastomeric product compositions for actual service.
This standard is modified to add a few more Standard Reference Compounds, in order to enhance the portfolio on FKM, AEM and ACM reflecting advancements in elastomer technology.
