“We have been working with you since more than 10 years. During this period your quality & delivery performance found is very good. Even when we arranged a supplier meet in 2012 we awarded you as a best supplier of the year in Bought out item category. Whenever we had any new developments your support was perfect. Overall your performance was very good & we hope the same in future too, We wish you all the best for your business growth.”

“We are working with Harkesh Rubber since 3 years. Our initial development of few seals for one of the important project developed and supplied by them as per the schedule. We found the quality and commitment for overall business is good. The response and technical support for our need is fair and on-time. Overall the services and co-operation found to be satisfactory. We wish the young and energetic Harkesh Rubber team a very best in all the future endeavours.”

“Harkesh Rubber Industries has been our co-partner for the supply of the rubber and its allied products from past 2 years which we used in our daily final product made for Indian Railways. We find the quality of product supplied by them in superior quality which lowest lead time. Overall the services and cooperation found out to be satisfactory in all key areas.”

“In all honesty I have to say that for us it's really a pleasure to do business with you now already more than 5 years. In the whole time you had never let us down, your delivery performance is nearly perfect, the service which we get is quicker than quick. The product quality has been never a problem and when we had an issue you help us always to solve it. This reliability is where we trust in and what makes our decision to work with you also in the future very easy.”

“Dear Harkesh Rubber Team, We have been working with you since last 6 years. During this period your Quality, Delivery and Performance found very good and consistent. During the development of new products specially FKM/FPM gaskets, we had very good technical support by your team, and we hope in future it will remain same. We wish you all the best for your business growth. Thanking you,”

Tensile Strength (TS)

Tensile strength is the maximum stress an object can withstand while being pulled before breaking. The maximum stress that thermoplastic elastomers and vulcanized thermoset rubbers can withstand before breaking, is the ultimate tensile strength (UTS).

Importance

Tensile tests are conducted for determining product quality and the effect of thermal or chemical exposure on an elastomer. Note that it is the retention of the elastomer’s properties that are important, rather than absolute values of elongation, modulus, and the tensile strength.

The testing requires taking a sample with a fixed cross-section and then stretching it at a constant strain rate with a tensometer, until the sample snaps.

Types of Tensile Strength
1) Yield Strength – The stress an object can withstand without leading to permanent deformation.
2) Ultimate Strength – The highest stress an object can withstand.
3) Breaking Strength – The stress coordinate on the stress-strain curve during the breaking point.

Test Methods
The TS of a rubber sample can be determined using one of two testing methods. Note that the test results are not always identical.
1) Test Method A
Straight Section Specimens and Dumbbell – The specimens are either injection molded or taken from a flat sheet that is not more than 0.13 inches nor less than 0.05 inches.
2) Test Method B
Cut Ring Specimens – The specimens are created by cutting rings from tubing or sheets. The dimensions are stated by the ASTM specifications.

Calculating Tensile Strength
Calculating TS for a rubber sample can be accomplished using:
TS = F(BE)/A)
Where,
TS – Tensile strength (stress at breaking point)
F(BE) – Force magnitude at breaking point
A – The cross-sectional area of the unstretched sample
