Optical and weathering properties Plexiglas ? acrylic resins offer outstanding optical properties, affording one of the highest spectral transmissions in the plastic industry. These same resins offer the user low haze for a truly spectacular appearance.
Accelerated UV Weathering of PP with HIPS Blends S Soundararajan* and K Palanivelu Dept of Plastics Technology/Central Institute of Plastics Engineering and Technology
properties of wood-plastic composites (WPC). The goal is also to evaluate the importance of wood flour fraction size on the mechanical properties of WPC and their influence on the accelerated weathering results.
The main focus of this document is on the process of weathering of plastics with particular emphasis on the causes and effects of UV degradation.
Given its nature, during weathering testing and ageing test, the movement of molecular chains or their breaking up affects the properties of plastics, almost always to make them worse. Let’s see how some weathering agents affect:

The purpose of sanding was to directly analyze the properties of the real material, because the sanded samples are closer to a realistic situation after long-term weathering. For the reference samples, compared with the un-weathered composites (Fig. 4a), obvious micro-cracks on the surface of weathered composites were observed (Fig. 4b) after ...
Weathering resistance of some plastics can be improved by adding UV stabilizers or UV resistant caps to protect the base polymer. Technical Assistance Solve application challenges, find answers to material questions, and get valuable technical advice.
