Service Life Prediction of Polymers and Plastics Exposed to Outdoor Weathering

Plastics and polymers have unique properties that make most of modern life possible - from sealants used in construction to polymer composites used in planes. While these materials are important enablers for advanced technologies, exposure to weather changes the very properties of plastics that make them so useful. Despite extensive efforts over the past 20-30 years, testing of polymeric materials in accelerated or natural weathering conditions and the interpretation of the weathering results still require substantial improvements. This book represents the state-of-the-art in the prediction techniques available and in development: engineers and materials scientists working in this field will be able to use the content of this book to assess the strengths and challenges of a range of different methods and approaches. The book reviews current research needs and provides a consensus road map of the scientific barriers to a validated predictive models for the response of polymers and plastics to outdoor exposure. A second road map included in this volume will detail the barriers to implantation of the completed technical work into industry consensus standards. Knowledge of the durability is critical to the sustainability score of a material. Readers interested in sustainability will be able to use this volume to understand what is possible in durability determinations. Enables engineers and scientists in a range of industries to more successfully predict the durability of polymers, paints and coatings when exposed to weather Provides the latest information to help determine the sustainability of polymeric materials Reviews the current state-of-the-art in this area and identifies research needs, followed by more detailed discussions of specific polymers and applications
