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.
