ASTM D6370 – Rubber Compositional Analysis by Thermogravimetry (TGA)
We perform rubber testing by ASTM D6370 to determine the amounts of organics (oil, polymer), carbon black and ash (filler) in rubber compounds by TGA. ASTM D6370 is used in quality control, material screening, and related problem solving where a compositional analysis, or comparison to a known material, is desired. The mass of rubber sample, heated at a controlled rate in a controlled environment, is recorded as a function of temperature. The mass loss over the specified temperature range provides a compositional analysis of the rubber sample.
