ASTM International has created a two-day training course for rubber industry technical and professional staff covering the most common rubber test methods.
ASTM will hold the course three times this year-Sept. 28-29 in Akron, Nov. 1-2 in Pittsburgh and Dec. 8-9 in Dallas.
The group said the course, ``Rubber Testing: Selecting, Performing, and Interpreting ASTM Rubber Test Methods,'' is designed for rubber technologists, chemists or compounders; process engineers, laboratory managers, supervisors and technicians; quality assurance managers and engineers; shop foremen, technical salespeople and others who need to understand the test methods.
The course will discuss subjects such as the nature of the tests, why they are performed and interpretation of test results.
