Many rubber parts are stored before put into service. It’s important that these products are stored in conditions that minimize unwanted surface effects like excessive hardening, softening and cracking or other changes like deformation, contamination and mechanical damage.

Storage conditions

Rubber parts should be stored away from direct sunlight, ozone generating equipment or sources of heat. Protection can be obtained indoors or by use of anti-UV fabric covering the rubber. The best storage temperature is between 15°C and 25°C and humidity should be less than 70% so that condensation doesn’t occur. Make sure the products are well secured from attack by rodents and insects and from contact with any liquid or semi-liquid materials. Contact with sharp, pointed or abrasive objects or surfaces should be avoided at all times.
