The temperature of 100’ f 1°C and the period of 72 hours are however recommended by IS0 for all rubber products in ISO/R 188 ‘ Accelerated ageing or simulated service tests of vulcanized natural or synthetic rubbers ‘. the ageing test for hoses with oil-resistant lining is specified to be carried out at 100” f 1°C for 72 h instead of 70” f 1“C for 72 h as recommended by IS0 for hoses.3 Since India is an exporting country of rubber hoses. three moie types have been introduced. Outside diameters have been prescribed as recommendatory in Appendix A. Further. In the present revision. Hoses under types 1. the working pressure should be 55 kgf/cms instead of 63 kgf/cm2. and bursting pressure should be three times the working pressure.
