ASTM D624

ASTM D624 is one of the most common test methods used for determining the tear strength of vulcanized rubber and thermoplastic elastomers, along with ISO 34. Due to the specimen shapes often used, this test is sometimes called a trouser, angle, or crescent test.

You can learn more about testing to this standard, including the equipment, software, and specimens needed, in our Definitive Guide to ASTM D624.
