Storage of our products


Rubber and products developed from it are subject to natural aging processes. Modern elastomer materials, however, are more stable both in terms of their base rubber and also because of suitable compound additives, and can, therefore, be used for a very long time. A few rules must be observed during storage.

 

The ageing process is essentially dependent on the following factors: 

  • Temperature
  • Heat radiation
  • Solar radiation
  • Moisture
  • Relative air humidity
  • Ozone and ionising radiation
  • Stress state of the component

Therefore, our products should be stored as follows in order to maintain their function for a long time: 

  • Storage temperatue below 25°C
  • No direct heat sources in the storage area
  • No direct sunlight
  • No exposure to ozone and ionising radiation
  • Storage largely free of stress
