The ElasTek™ Model SRI Resiliometer, quickly and accurately measures the “Rubber Property—Resilience by Vertical Rebound” as described in ASTM D2632.
The determination of rebound resilience is accomplished by dropping a plunger of a specific mass and geometry from a predetermined height to the surface of a test specimen and measuring the distance that the plunger rebounds after contact and calculating the ratio of rebound distance to the distance traveled by the mass prior to contacting the test specimen.
This ratio is expressed as a percentage, and since the scale is graduated into 100 equal divisions, this ratio (percentage) may be read directly from the scale when the plunger rebounds to its maximum height.
This instrument is especially useful in developing compounds that are intended to effect the transmission of shock or vibration, as “… resilience is a function of both the dynamic modulus and the internal friction of a rubber.” (ASTM D2632 Section 4).
