Environmental Stress Cracking - The Plastic Killer

About this event

Environmental stress cracking (ESC) is the leading cause of plastic component failure. If you deal with plastic components, then “Environmental Stress Cracking - The Plastic Killer” will provide you with information that will enhance your understanding of the interaction between chemicals and plastics, with the goal of preventing part failure. ESC is a solvent-induced failure mode in which a plastics crack through contact with a chemical agent while under stress.

At the end of this presentation you will:

  • Have a better understanding how chemicals effect plastic components.
  • Recognize potential situations where ESC failure could occur in your parts.
  • Be able to design a chemical resistance program to evaluate plastic/chemical combinations.
