This guideline also recommends individual packaging, but in our 40 years of being in business, bulk packaging shows no difference over time. Share your thoughts in the comments below or connect with us on Twitter AppleRubber. However, the standard can also be used as a guideline and recommended practice for the shelf life of rubber seals, gaskets and many industrial and commercial grade elastomers.

What are best practices for storing elastomeric seals? Ozone — storage rooms shall not contain any equipment that is capable of generating ozone. Have any questions or comments on the shelf life of elastomeric compounds?


Aged Junk or Jewels. Apple Rubber xrp5316 a number of requests to determine the shelf life of a given rubber part.

This released aerospace elastomers from age control. The study concluded that the overall properties of elastomeric materials improved over a given time, which made age control less restrictive.

The standard includes shelf-life recommendations, need for traceability and proper storage of elastomeric seals.

The storage period prior to installation of elastomeric seals and seal assemblies into hardware components. ARP in no way establishes a shelf life for storage of assembled components or operating lifespan. How do you properly calculate elastomer age? Apple Rubber is looking at ISO for estimation of life-time use based on compression set, and we will arp5361 posting data once our study is completed.

How to Calculate Shelf Life of Elastomers | Hot Topics

The authors concluded that age control had been very conservative and could qrp5316 extended with proper storage. Unfortunately, the answer to these questions are not so simple. This resulted in confusion and costly increases to seal procurement. However, the study left reference to AS Apple Rubber utilizes a calendar quarter for the cure date — meaning the last date of the quarter is considered the manufacturing date. Unless compliance regulated, shelf arp316 of all rubber parts should be considered unlimited.


From this document, shelf lives of elastomers procured by government agencies were limited to 12 quarters from the cure date of the seal.
