The following grid lists the types of
testing offered by independent testing
laboratories. Tests for physical testing
of rubber include stress/strain
test; time-dependent test; destructive
test; and processrng. Tests for chemical
analysis of raw materials and rubber
are broken down into spectrophotometry,
spectrometry and spectroscopy;
chromatography; thermal
analysis; and microscopy. Each of
these subdivisions is further broken
down into the specific type of tests.
