Abstract

Elasticity and stringiness are high-profile characteristics of the adhesive bond of rubber cement. These parameters are difficult to measure with most conventional adhesive testing means. We have modified a butt-test method with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer to quantify all adhesive characteristics of rubber cements. A time series of this test is a very effective manner to quantify how these rubber cements cure.
