This document specifies a method for the determination of the apparent hardness, expressed in International Rubber Hardness Degrees (IRHD), of vulcanized- or thermoplastic-rubber roller covers. The method is similar in principle to the methods used for the determination of the hardness of rubber in ISO 48-2 in that it consists essentially of measuring the depth of penetration of a spherical indentor operating under a specified force. The apparatus used is similar to that described in ISO 48-2, having a base specifically designed for application to roller covers and similar curved surfaces. NOTE With some rollers, there can be significant variation in the thickness of the rubber over the surface of the roller, which could affect the measured apparent hardness.

This document specifies a method for the determination of the apparent hardness of vulcanized- or thermoplastic-rubber roller covers, expressed in Shore hardness, for measurement where only medium precision is required. The method and apparatus used are essentially those described in ISO 48-4, the measurements in this case being made on the curved surface of the conditioned rubber-covered roller rather than on a flat test piece. Shore type A and type D instruments are specified, the latter being used for measurements on rollers of high hardness. NOTE With some rollers, there can be significant variation in the thickness of the rubber over the surface of the roller, which could affect the measured apparent hardness.

This document specifies a method for the determination of the apparent hardness of vulcanized- or thermoplastic-rubber roller covers, expressed as the Pusey and Jones indentation value. The Pusey and Jones plastometer apparatus is used to measure the depth of indentation of an indentor under a specified force into the surface of the rubber. The indentation value is not the same as that measured by the international rubber hardness test method ISO 48-2, since in this method the rubber immediately adjacent to the indentor is precompressed. The Pusey and Jones indentation value is an inverse measurement of hardness, i.e. the harder the rubber the lower the Pusey and Jones indentation value.

ISO 2321:2017 specifies methods of test for determining general physical and mechanical properties of rubber threads, as well as specific mechanical properties of such threads in contact with fabrics. Owing to the comparatively small cross-section and the unusual conditions of service of this material, certain special methods have been developed. Some of the tests included in this document are not entirely suitable for threads made from certain synthetic rubbers (e.g. urethane rubber). These tests are intended for natural or synthetic polyisoprene rubbers. Comparisons can only be made on new rubber threads or on those with identical processing histories. In the interpretation of results from threads which have been subjected to spooling, fabrication or any other process, the previous history is important, and what is known of this and of any relaxation treatments used is intended to be reported.
