Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International

Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 6118 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 22, Road vehicles, Subcommittee SC 2, Braking

systems and equipment.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 6118:1980), which has been technically revised.

6.1.1.3 Chemical balance, capable of weighing to 1mg.
ISO 2006 – All rights reserved 5
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
ISO 6118:2006(E)

6.1.1.4 Oven, uniformly heated dry air type, conforming to the requirements for method B of ISO 188:1998.

6.1.1.5 Two glass-stoppered weighing bottles, of adequate mouth size to hold the seals under test.

6.1.1.6 Isopropyl or ethyl alcohol, of 95 % (by volume) reagent grade for washing purpose.

6.1.2 Test specimens
Two seals shall be used for testing at 70 C.
6.1.3 Test procedure

Rinse the cups in the alcohol (6.1.1.6) and wipe dry with a clean, lint-free cloth to remove dirt and packing

debris. Do not leave the seals in the alcohol for more than 30 s.

Measure the lip and base diameters to the nearest 0,02 mm, taking the average of two readings at right angles

to one another. Take care when measuring the diameters before and after ageing that the measurements are

made in the same manner and at the same locations.

Determine and record the initial hardness of the test seals. (See 6.7 and Figure 3.)

Determine the volume of each seal in the following manner: weigh the seals in air (m ) to the nearest 0,001 g

and then weigh the seals immersed in distilled water at room temperature (m ). Quickly dip each specimen in

alcohol and then blot dry with filter paper free of lint and foreign material.

Immerse two seals completely in 75 ml±1ml of compatibility reference fluid as defined in ISO 4926, in the

glass container (6.1.1.2) and seal the container to prevent vapour loss. Place the container in the oven (6.1.1.4)

◦ ◦

set at 70 C± 2 C for a period of 120 h±2h. At the end of the heating period, remove the container from the

◦ ◦

oven and allow the seals to cool in the container at 23 C± 5 C for 60 min to 90 min. At the end of the cooling

period, remove the seals from the container and rinse in the alcohol and wipe dry with a clean, lint-free cloth. Do

not allow the seals to remain in the alcohol for more than 30 s.

After removal from the alcohol and drying, place each seal in a separate, tarred, stoppered weighing bottle

(6.1.1.5) and weigh (m ). Remove each seal from its weighing bottle and weigh immersed in distilled water

(m ) to determine water displacement after hot fluid immersion. Make all weighings to the nearest 0,001 g.

Determine the final volume, dimensions and hardness of each seal within 60 min of rinsing in the alcohol.

6.1.4 Expression of results
6.1.4.1 Volume change

Volume change ∆V shall be reported as a percentage of the original volume. The change in volume is given by

the formula:
(m − m )− (m − m )
3 4 1 2
∆V = × 100
(m − m )
1 2
where
m is the initial mass in air, in grams;
m is the initial apparent mass in water, in grams;
m is the mass in air after immersion in test fluid, in grams;
m is the apparent mass in water after immersion test fluid, in grams.

ISO 6118:2006(E)
6.1.4.2 Dimensional change

The original measurements of the lip and base diameters shall be subtracted from measurements taken after

the test and the difference reported in millimetres and as percentages of the original diameters.

6.1.4.3 Hardness
Change in hardness shall be determined and recorded.
6.1.4.4 Disintegration

The seals shall be examined for disintegration as evidenced by blisters or sloughing.

6.2 Precipitation test
6.2.1 Apparatus
The following apparatus shall be used for the test.
250 ml 50 mm

6.2.1.1 Glass containers, of capacity approximately and diameter , which can be tightly sealed.

100 ml
6.2.1.2 Cone-shaped centrifuge tube, of capacity .

6.2.1.3 Oven, uniformly heated dry air type, conforming to the requirements for Method B of ISO 188:1998.

6.2.2 Test specimen

From two or more seals to be tested, obtain a sample of mass 4,0 g± 0,5 g. Since sizes of seals vary, small

pieces may be cut from the seal to arrive at the mass. Use the minimum number of pieces to obtain a mass of

4,0 g± 0,5 g.
6.2.3 Test procedure

To determine the precipitation compatibility characteristics of the test seals, place the sample (6.2.2) in one of

the specified glass containers (6.2.1.1) containing 75 ml of compatibility fluid of ISO 4926. Seal the container to

◦ ◦
prevent vapour loss and place in an oven (6.2.1.3) at 70 C± 2 C for 120 h±2h.

As an optional test, a blank test may be run on the brake fluid prior to the test and any sediment from the blank

test may be subtracted from the sediment amount obtained from the test.

At the end of the heating period, remove the container from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature for

24 h, after which remove the seals.

Agitate thoroughly the contents of the jar and transfer the fluid and suspended particles to a cone-shaped

centrifuge tube (6.2.1.2) of 100 ml capacity and determine the sediment as follows.

a) Measure a 10 ml sample of the fluid and suspended particles to be tested in each of two clean, dry

centrifuge tubes at room temperature. Fill each tube to the 100 ml mark with the naphtha (see caution

below) and close tightly with a softened cork (not a rubber stopper). Then invert each tube at least 20 times,

allowing the liquid to drain thoroughly from the tapered tip of the tube each time. Place the tubes in a water

◦ ◦

bath at 32 C to 35 C for 5 min. Momentarily remove the corks to relieve any pressur
