Standard Practice for Rubber From Synthetic Sources—Sampling

Available format(s)

Hardcopy , PDF



Published date


1.1This practice, intended for referee purposes, covers a uniform procedure for sampling lots of solid synthetic rubbers. Raw synthetic rubber generally is marketed in bales or packages of various sizes.

1.2A procedure for determining the acceptability of lots of synthetic rubber is given. This procedure is based on a variables sampling plan.

1.3The sample size is based on the assumption of a visually homogeneous material. If obvious heterogeneity exists, the number of samples shall be increased.

1.4The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
