The authors concluded that age control had been very conservative and could be extended with proper storage. This guideline also recommends individual packaging, but in our 40 years of being in business, bulk packaging shows no difference over time.
This released aerospace elastomers from age control. The study concluded that the overall properties of elastomeric materials improved over a given time, which made age control less restrictive.
Unfortunately, the answer to these questions are not so simple. The storage period prior to installation of elastomeric seals and seal assemblies into hardware components.

However, the study left reference to AS However, the standard can also be used as a guideline and recommended practice for the shelf life of rubber seals, gaskets and many industrial and commercial grade elastomers.
Saee resulted in confusion and costly increases to seal procurement. Apple Rubber is looking at ISO for estimation of life-time use based on compression set, and we will be posting data once our study is completed. Apple Rubber utilizes a calendar quarter for the cure date — meaning the last date of the quarter is considered the manufacturing date.
What are best practices for storing elastomeric seals? Unless compliance regulated, shelf life of all rubber parts should be considered unlimited. Ozone — storage rooms shall not contain any equipment that is capable of generating ozone. The standard includes shelf-life recommendations, need for traceability and proper storage of elastomeric seals.
ARP in no way establishes a shelf life for storage of assembled components or operating lifespan. March 20th, by John Tranquilli. How do you properly calculate elastomer age?
How to Calculate Shelf Life of Elastomers | Hot Topics
Apple Rubber receives a number of requests to determine the shelf life of a given rubber part. Have any questions or comments on the shelf life of elastomeric compounds?
From this document, shelf lives of elastomers procured by government agencies were limited to 12 quarters from the cure date of the seal. Aged Junk or Jewels.
