- Publisher's Summary
- Providing a comprehensive overview of the science of polymer durability, this work discusses the molecular mechanisms of polymer aging and deterioration, emphasizing UV and thermal exposure environments. It describes a variety of analytical techniques for studying degradation, with special emphasis on chemiluminescence. Covering advances in the use of additives and other approaches for enhancing polymer stability, it reviews mechanisms and applications of major classes of stabilizers, and discusses the problem of stabilizer migration and loss. It also examines new methods for predicting the aging rate and lifetime of a material.
