Rubber and sealing industry:
Ozone does have applications in the rubber industry, specifically in the testing and evaluation of rubber materials for their resistance to ozone degradation. Rubber products can be exposed to ozone in various environments, such as outdoor conditions or near electrical equipment that generates ozone.
Ozone exposure can cause rubber to degrade over time, leading to cracks, brittleness, and reduced performance. To assess the ozone resistance of rubber materials, ozone testing chambers or ozone exposure tests are conducted. These tests involve subjecting rubber samples to controlled ozone concentrations and evaluating their performance and durability.
Rubber manufacturers and industries that utilize rubber products, such as automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing sectors, may employ ozone testing technologies to ensure the quality and durability of rubber components. Ozone testing helps in determining the suitable rubber materials for specific applications, ensuring they can withstand environmental exposure and maintain their integrity over time.
