Temperature and Enthalpy of Melting-Crystallization

heat ageing of plastics

The physical and the mechanical properties of the plastics can be highly affected at temperatures above ambient. For this reason, as a part of quality control, plastics are conditioned (heat ageing of plastics) at elevated temperatures for a certain period of time and their physical properties are assessed before, during or/and after the heating process in order to simulate the actual application environment.
