This document specifies a method for the determination of the static adhesion of textile cord to vulcanized rubber using the H-pull test. It is applicable to cords made from natural or man-made fibres.
The property levels obtained with this method are affected considerably by the history of the cord and the rubber compound. The method yields data, however, on which a judgement as to the service quality of the material can be based.
The method is primarily intended for use with tyre cord. However, it can be applied, if desired, to similar cords for use in other rubber products, but it is limited to cords of linear density not exceeding 800 mg/m (tex).
