(Long Branch, NJ) “ASTM D 1056 explained” is a complete illustrated guide that explains the industry Standard Specification for flexible cellular materials—sponge or expanded rubber.  John M. Bonforte Sr., Technical Support and GM of Monmouth Rubber & Plastics stated, “We created the “ASTM D 1056 explained” to help OEMs, fabricators, gasket cutters and resellers to quickly understand ASTM D elastomeric materials specifications, physical properties and tests. The 1056 specification has been around for over 60 plus years with revisions every 5 plus years. This has left a trail of changes that need clarification to new and existing companies. Monmouth Rubber supplies explanations in a variety of ways to an endless list of questions related to the 60 plus years of changes to the specification.

The American Society of Testing Materials prepared the ASTM D 1056 specifications to “cover flexible cellular rubber products known as sponge rubber and expanded rubber. The base material for an open/closed cellular product may be made of synthetic, reclaimed or natural rubber, or a mixture, and may contain other polymers or chemicals, or both, which may be modified by organic or inorganic additives”.
