    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives methods for evaluating the resistance of vulcanized thermoset or thermoplastic rubbers to the action of liquids by measurement of properties of the rubbers before and after immersion into the test liquids. The liquids include petroleum derivatives, organic solvents and chemical reagents along with the reference test liquids.
