FREE for SPE Members
If you work with plastic components that include outdoor exposure, then “Ultraviolet (UV) Effects on Plastic Materials” will provide you with information that will enhance your understanding of the interaction between UV radiation-based weathering and plastic resins, and help prevent premature failure. Topics covered during this session include an introduction to UV degradation and an explanation of the failure mechanism characteristic of UV radiation/plastic interaction. Case studies associated with UV radiation exposure will be presented.
