Title: Over 20 Years of Elastomeric Bearings Without Trouble: A Scheme for Safety and Reliability
Author(s): Jupp Grote
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 865-886
Keywords: bearings; performance; plastics, plolymers, and resins; polycloroprenes; quality control; rubber; tests
Abstract:In view of the practically incalculable long-term behaviour of elastomer and all the hazards of rubber products manufactured in small batches, German authorities preferred to lay stress more on the reliability of high-quality performance than on detailed design calculations. They decided on one single approved compound based on polychloroprene, and on a single table of approved dimensions. . .The institution submits an annual report on this quality control.
