Do polymers undergo changes in service?


Frequently asked questions

Depending on the service conditions and molecular structures of the polymers used, they undergo changes in service. The changes can be brought about as a result of temperature, applied stresses, moisture, chemical diffusions, radiation or any combination of these factors. Additionally, multi-component materials may fail due to material incompatibility or poor interfacial adhesion.
