Session 16: How to Test Tires and Rubber Compounds

Wednesday, July 8, 2020

Traditional testing of laminate layers in a tire requires extensive dissection and can negatively impact the results. ProbeDMA™ eliminates the need to individually dissect the tire layers and allows the quantification of viscoelastic properties with high spatial resolution across layers and at interfaces. This session is a live demonstration of nanoindentation with the KLA nanoindenter to characterize the viscoelastic properties of tire cross-sections. KLA application engineers will demonstrates sample preparation, instrument configuration, test specification, execution and data interpretation.
