How should elastomers be stored so that they retain their functionality and service life?


With the exception of uncured rubber blends, the characteristics of properly stored and treated rubber products usually remain virtually unchanged for a few years. The physical properties of a large proportion of rubber products will change if the products are treated incorrectly or stored in unfavourable conditions. Factors such as heat, moisture, light, oxygen, ozone or solvents, or stor-age under tension can reduce the service life of the products or render them unusable.
