The paper a part of research aimed at the alternative of preparing test samples by injection molding. Such an alternative could bring more objective results in the field of testing samples produced in the same technology. The research is aimed at changing the preparation of rubber testing samples - replacing the standard method according to ISO 23529 by the injection method, especially with the use of rubber compounds for injection molding. This article compares and evaluates the selected physical properties (tensile strength and tear strength) of EPDM rubber injection molded samples with samples prepared by the standard method - cutting out of a compression molded plate. The results have shown that using the injection molded samples we will achieve more objective results mainly to determine the tear strength. In the case of tensile strength, the differences are not so significant.
