The objective of this handbook is to provide aerospace weapons system design engineers with useful data on the materials properties of elastomers. The sources of this information are Department of Defense research reports and the technical literature of engineering design and elastomer technology. The elastomeric materials for which data are presented are compounds of high polymers currently available in the U. S. A. The properties considered are original mechanical and physical properties and their changes that result from aging and exposure to environments of aerospace weapons systems. Elastomer compounding is only briefly treated in this handbook because it is intended for use by structural and mechanical engineers rather than by rubber chemists and technologists. Elastomer part design methods are not reviewed in this handbook because they are the subjects of other Deaprtment of Defense reports which this handbook is intended to complement. A selected bibliography of the technical literature on elastomers and elastomeric parts is included to aid the handbook user who needs further information on these topics.
