Abstract : A report on the development of a test method for determining the hydrolytic stability of elastomeric vulcanizates. The test covers the determination of the tensile strength of the vulcani-zates before and after exposure over water for four days at 185^F. The method has been adopted by ASTM as ASTM D3137-727.
