Lifetime prediction of biodegradable polymers

Volume: 71, Pages: 144 - 189
Published: Aug 1, 2017
The determination of the safe working life of polymer materials is important for their successful use in engineering, medicine and consumer-goods applications. An understanding of the physical and chemical changes to the structure of widely-used polymers such as the polyolefins, when exposed to aggressive environments, has provided a framework for controlling their ultimate service lifetime by either stabilising the polymer or chemically...
