The physical properties of a number of rubber vulcanisates have been measured at 22, 100 and 150C before and after ageing in a non-aromatic oil, an aromatic oil and dry air at 100 and 150C. The results show that the immediate effect of raising the operating temperature in air to 100 and 150C seriously impairs the tensile properties of all the rubbers and the effect of oil in comparison is initially only marginal. The rubbers as compounded for this investigation can be divided into 4 categories with regard to resistance to ageing in oil and air. Author
