This chapter focuses on weatherability of vinyl and other plastics. The mechanism of weathering is often caused by the damaging radiation from the sun. One way to rate the outdoor light stability of various polymers is to establish the energy to break its bonds. Outdoor weathering data is presented for a variety of polymers. Weatherability | materials testing New standards, equipment and testing procedures are improving the reliability of accelerated weather testing. Jennifer Markarian reports Understanding how to best protect a plastic part from the effects of weathering needs to include an analysis of several important factors.

Since the previous edition, several new materials have been announced. Many of these materials result from metallocene catalyst technology. In addition, developments also continue with condensation polymers with several new polyester type materials of interest 4/5(4). 1 Material Properties of Plastics Formation and Structure The basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains, formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions. Typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer-ization (polycondensation) [1] (Figure ).

Testing of the creep behaviour of samples of plastic. European/ISO Standard: DIN EN ISO , Part 2. The elongation (deformation) of a plastic exposed to a constant force becomes ever greater with time. This phenomenon is known as creep behaviour. Creep behaviour can be determined by performing a three-point bending test on small samples of the. Plastic materials are often used for outdoor applications such as architectural glazing, mass transportation interiors, and marine dock n plastics such as acrylic, Ultem®, PVDF, and PTFE are inherently UV stable. However, most plastic materials exhibit color change and loss of elongation when exposed to UV light. 6Elasticity is a form of materials response that refers to immediate and time-independent deformation upon loading, and complete and instant recovery of the original geometry upon removal of the load. A material is elastic or it is not, one material cannot be “more elastic” than another, and a material can be elastic without obeying the. Weatherability of plastic materials.
