To meet customer application needs, Corry Rubber Corporation employs a six-step process for elastomer selection and physical property definition. Using our elastomer selection guide, our engineers work with you to:

  1. Identify the most cost effective elastomer for the application.
  2. Select a hardness range.
  3. Select a tensile strength and elongation minimum.
  4. Determine if the component will be used in compression, tension or shear or combinations thereof.
  5. Consider any mechanical properties that may be relevant to the application.
  6. Consider any chemical or environmental exposure issues.
  7. Determine if the application is dynamic in nature and the stresses and strains involved.
  8. Develop material specification compliant with ASTM D-2000 or SAE J-200.

To begin the process of elastomer selection, Corry Rubber helps customers determine the following:

  • Is the application static or dynamic in nature?
  • To what fluids will the elastomer be exposed during service?
  • To what temperatures will the elastomer be exposed during service?
  • Will the elastomer be exposed to the weather for long periods of time during its service?
  • What is the desired service life of the elastomeric product?
  • Is low damping or high damping desired?
