Durability Test on Plastic Components

Print

As plastics are used in varied environments, they are subject to degradation such as oxidation and decomposition that occurs due to various factors. It becomes possible to design product life by reproducing the phenomenon of such degradation.
We have made many types of testing equipment available for service to our clients to cope with a broad range of degradation phenomena to meet the needs of our clients.

Durability test and degradation analysis

Degradation mode Degradation acceleration test Degradation cause analysis technique (analytical method)
Light Weatherability (optical) test Cross section analysis (microscopic observation (optical, SEM), microscopic IR), degradation depth analysis (microscopic IR, XPS, TOF-SIMS), molecular weight
Heat Heat aging test Thermogravimetric changes, thermal decomposition products, heat generated gas, melting temperature
Oxygen, water Oxidation induction time (OIT), PCT Fracture surface analysis (microscopic observation (optical, SEM), microscopic IR), degradation depth analysis (microscopic IR, XPS, TOF-SIMS), molecular weight
Force, stress Fatigue, creep, frictional wear Fracture surface analysis (microscopic observation (optical, SEM), microscopic IR), crystallinity/orientation (X-ray diffraction, Raman), molecular mobility
chemicals Soaking, exposure to corrosive gas Fracture surface analysis (microscopic observation (optical, SEM), microscopic IR), degradation depth analysis (microscopic IR, XPS, TOF-SIMS)
