Characterization of Car Tire Rubber

Introduction

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is one of the most appropriate methods to investigate relaxation events. Rubbery samples are normally examined in either shear or a bending geometry. This note examines single cantilever bending and how the experimental challenges can be overcome through the unique design of the PerkinElmer® DMA 8000.
