Akron Rubber Development Laboratory Inc. is offering diffusion limited oxidation testing to predict life expectancy of rubber and plastic products. Tested at room temperature, the process eliminates the need to extrapolate accelerated testing data to the actual service temperature. Combining the effects of Fickian diffusion and oxygen consumption, the DLO model incorporates chemical analysis into a computer model using finite element analysis to determine reliability, durability and life prediction. Call 330-794-6600 or visit www.ardl.com for more information.
