The Degradation of Plastics

About this event

Nothing lasts forever and degradation is just one of the many mechanisms that dictates the end of life of plastic products. Degradation can be introduced through multiple sources. From the compounding stage, to the processing stage, and all through the lifetime use of the product. This webinar will introduce the concept of degradation and present different mechanisms that can lead to degradation. In addition, techniques for identifying degradation will be discussed and methods for degradation prevention will be presented. This webinar is recommended for anyone wanting to learn more about plastics and the mechanisms that can lead to their useful end of life.
