Abstract : This document establishes requirements for age control of elastomer parts used in aircraft, space vehicles, and missiles, and component assemblies thereof containing elastomeric parts at time of delivery to the Government. Age Control is the designation of a specific maximum period of age after cure date or assembly date that will assure desired conformance characteristics of an elastomeric part. Age control is based on the premise that elastomers deteriorate upon exposure to ozone, oxygen, heat, sunlight, rain, and other similar environmental factors.
