Abstract:

In general terms, the major goal of the project was to evaluate the techniques of infrared spectrophotometry I.R., pyrolysis gas chromatography P.G.C. and gel permeation chromatography G.P.C. for potential use in a quality control program for monitoring the major constituents of finished rubber components used in Sonar devices. During the course of the project the major goal was redefined and a more specific one undertaken. Work in the research program was then directed toward evaluating the techniques of I.R., P.G.C. and G.P.C. for potential use in a quality control program for monitoring the polymer fraction of uncured, compounded butyl isobutylene, Neoprene Chloroprene, and natural isoprene based rubber materials.
