Abstract:
Seasonal variation of deterioration and the effect of membrane elongation and thickness on rate of deterioration were determined for one butyl rubber formulation at Logan, Utah. Deterioration rates were greatest during the high temperature part of the year. Deterioration rates increased as elongation increased and as membrane thickness decreased. Short exposure times (a few weeks) can be used to evaluate the potential life of a butyl rubber membrane when thickness, stress (elongation), and season are properly considered.
