Using Modeling with a DOE Approach to Predict Polymer Material Service Life

February 27, 2023

The material properties of polymers like plastics and elastomers can be affected by their environments and weaken over time. These changes can lead to premature product failure. It is, therefore, important to perform material characterization and age testing prior to making a new product.

EWI Senior Technology Leader Jeff Ellis has written Predicting Polymer Service Life through Degradation Modeling Using Design of Experiments, which describes an informed, streamlined, way to conduct characterization and age testing that will save both time and money.
