The tensile strength of rubber or elastomer refers to the maximum uniform plasticity stress produced by the material and the ultimate ability of the material to resist tensile damage.
Tensile performance is one of the important indexes of rubber materials. The service life of the rubber is related to its tensile strength. When inspecting the quality of the finished product, designing the rubber formula, arranging the production process, and determining the rubber aging and liquid resistance properties, the tensile property usually has to be tested for identification. Therefore, the tensile property is one of the essential and routine testing items for rubber. The load per unit thickness when the sample is torn is the tearing strength.
