Ozone Corrosion Resistence Testing Machine

The presence of ozone in the atmosphere can adversely affect many rubber products causing cracking on the surface of the material. Conducting controlled, laboratory testing of material samples against industry standards can quickly provide product manufacturers critical information needed to make formulation decisions.

Ozone is created when sunlight acts on various pollutants in the air, such as oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emanating from vehicle and industrial emissions. Ozone exposure is most common in heavily populated areas where high industrial activity exists which can affect tires and other rubber products that are subject to frequent exposure. It has also been determined that ozone is created by electrical fields in industrial equipment such as pumps, generators, and electrical cabinets, affecting gaskets, o-rings, and other rubber accessories. The ozone aging tester complies with JIS K7212, K6723, ASTM D2436, D573, ISO 4577, IEC 540, 60216.
