PARAMETERS:

Start Torque Value: ts1

Final Torque Value: ts2

EXPRESSION:

Mooney Stress-Relaxation Rate

OVERVIEW:

Stress Relaxation test consists of determining the decay of the Mooney torque immediately after the determination of the Mooney viscosity. After abruptly stopping the rotor at the end of the Mooney viscosity measurement, the decrease in torque is recorded as a function of time. The rate of change of the torque is evaluated over a short time interval.

REFERENCE STANDARD: ISO 289-4

CALCULATION:

The calculation returns the slope of the linear regression line of the log(torque) versus log(time) plot over a specified time interval after stopping the rotor at the end of a Mooney viscosity measurement. According to ISO Standard the regression is calculated between 1.6 and 5 seconds from rotor stop.

UNIT: Mu/sec

PARAMETERS:

Time for Start of Regression Calculation: t1

Time for Stop of Regression Calculation: t2

EXPRESSION:

a(MSR) t1_t2 - Example: a(MSR) 1.6_5.0

Mooney Stress-Relaxation Area

The calculation returns the area under the stress relaxation curve over a specified time interval after stopping the rotor at the end of a Mooney viscosity measurement.

REFERENCE STANDARD: ASTM D 1646

UNIT: Mu*sec

PARAMETERS:

Time for Start of the Calculation: t1

Time for Stop of the Calculation: t2

EXPRESSION:

A (t1_t2) - Example: A (1.6_5.0)
