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