Polymer Testing - Wolfgang Grellmann, Sabine Seidler (Hanser, 2007).pdf

Testing of plastics provides an insight to the behavior of the material in response to applied loads or exposure to the environment and time. In order to determine the true performance of a plastic material, a comprehensive understanding of the broad range of plastics behavior, such as its mechanical, thermal, electrical, rheological, physical and chemical properties as well as environmental resistance is necessary. In industrial practice, fabricated parts are often tested as part of the design validation step to ensure that end use performance requirements are adequately met. This book provides a comprehensive discussion of test methods for various properties of plastics, related to different material types and forms, with reference to national, international and application/industry specific test methods in a practical, easy to understand manner
