Abstract : The purpose of this work was to determine the lowest temperature at which a variety of rubber vulcanizates and other nonmetallic materials will remain nonbrittle and flexible and exhibit moderate recovery from applied deformation. The operation of a mechanically refrigerated low temperature test cabinet useful at temperatures down to -320 F is described.
