DUREL rubber buffers – unsurpassed quality for the offshore and industrial sector, for example for mechanical engineering, crane and material handling applications

Elastomer buffers are subject to natural aging caused by ozone, UV radiation or hydrolysis. They need to be inspected regularly for signs of aging, for example during an annual crane inspection. Due to varying environmental conditions no general statements about the expected service life of this product can be made.

While rubber is less affected by hydrolysis, environmental influences, such as ozone or UV radiation, significantly contribute to the aging process. The diagrams illustrate the artificial hot-air aging of EDPM rubber.
