Time lapsed testing of plastics under media influence by using the load increase method
Environmental Stress Cracking (ESC) is one of the most common failure reasons of plastic parts during their use. Therefore this failure mechanism is of great technical and economical importance. Hereby it is important to know how to characterise the susceptibility of a plastic resin under influence of a specific medium. One intention of the research activities of the IKV is to set up a new testing procedure to predict the long term properties of plastic materials under media influence by using a short term testing method.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
