Abstract:

A total of 9 rubber stocks were tested to determine their various physical properties pertinent to the function of gasket material for deep submergence submarines. Of these 9 stocks, 5 were formulations already available, and the other 4 stocks were formulations developed in the laboratory. An analysis of test data compiled at this time indicates that one of the stocks already available and 2 of the newly developed stocks should be put through a pressure cell, or simulated service test for evaluation as deep submergence gasket material.
