RMA Table 36 – Sponge Cross Section Organic/Silicone #1, BEC 1

Tolerances on cross-sectional dimensions of irregular and cored shapes of extruded, closed-cellular rubber. Class 1 Tolerances in the table below are recommended only for high volume, tight products, or automotive applications.

RMA Class 1* 2 3
RMA Dwg. Designation BEC1 BEC2 BEC3
Millimeters
0 – 6.3 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.5 +/- 0.63
6.3 – 12.5 0.63 1 1.25
12.5 – 25 1.25 2 2.5
25 – 40 2 3.2 4
40 & Over multiply by: 0.06 0.08 1

0 – 0.25 +/- 0.016 +/- 0.020 +/- 0.025
0.25 – 0.5 0.025 0.04 0.05
0.5 – 1 0.05 0.08 0.1
1 – 1.6 0.08 0.125 0.16
1.6 & Over multiply by: 0.06 0.08 0.1

*Class 1 tolerances should not be applied to softer grades of material—below 63 kPa (9psi) compression deflection.

Here you can create the content that will be used within the module.
