How do I read the cure curve from a Moving Die Rheometer?

The most essential test for extruders, injection molders, and mixers is the cure test. Cure characteristics are attained through instruments like a Moving Die Rheometer (MDR). Without the quality control established by the MDR, production of rubber materials would be at a stand still. The video below outlines everything you need to know in order to read the MDR cure curve.
