Standard Test Method for Compressibility and Recovery of Laminated Composite Gasket Materials
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Seals, glands):||21.140|
1.1 This test method covers determination of the short-time compressibility and recovery at room temperature of laminated composite gasket materials.
1.2 This test method is not intended as a test for compressibility under prolonged stress application, that is "creep," or for recovery following such prolonged stress application, the inverse of which is generally referred to as "compression set." Also, it is only intended for tests at room temperature.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
