Abrasion resistance[edit]

I have removed the reference to chainmail and the abrasion resistance text and value. Units of volume are not appropriate for such a measure - I suspect vandalism of a more sophisticated nature in this case. (JGarry (talk) 18:34, 28 May 2010 (UTC))


Re Appearance... the "black colour" is due to the addition of carbon black during compounding, many other colours can be used. (talk) 13:53, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Tensile Strength[edit]

The tensile strength in MPA does not make much sense to me. Most geosynthetics list a kN/m value for tensile strength — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:26, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

The tensile strength given in MPa is for the ASTM D412 test. The units you mention are for a tear strength test. Both are measures of strength. AresLiam (talk) 11:34, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Page refers to "chainmail" as a product manufactured with EPDM. That reference is probably graffiti.
