PLASTICS TESTING II

 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVES:
• To impart knowledge of National & International standards for testing methods.
• To create the knowledge about the different testing techniques and its basic concepts for evaluating the chemical, mechanical, electrical, optical, thermal, and permanence of plastic materials.
• To enable the students to identify and compare the properties of different plastics materials.
• To enable the students to learn about the property of the plastic material for several applications.

UNIT I

TESTING OF MECHANICAL AND PERMANANCE PROPERTIES

9

Mechanical Properties: Fatigue properties-burst strength- folding endurance, Compression set, Long term mechanical properties: -creep & Stress relaxation. Permanence Properties: Water absorption-soluble and insoluble matter-chemical resistance- environmental stress cracking resistance-ageing-gas permeability-water vapour permeability.

UNIT II

TESTING OF THERMAL AND WEATHERING PROPERTIES

9

Thermal Properties: Thermal endurance, thermal stability, thermal ageing, glass transition temperature, Marten’s heat resistance test, flexibility test, shrinkage. Weathering properties- Weather and Climatic impact on properties of plastics-UV-A and UV-B weathering- Accelerated weathering-Xenon arc weatherometer.


UNIT III

ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES

9

Characterization Principles and analysis of polymer samples- FTIR, DSC, TGA, DMA, XRD, SEM, GPC,TMA, GC, AAS, TEM, XRF.

UNIT IV

PRODUCT TESTING

9

Product testing: Testing of plastics pipes, film, sheets, FRP, woven sack, Water bottles and containers, Electrical Conduits, emitters and laterals.

UNIT V

FAILIURE ANALYSIS

9

Failure analysis of products and its measurement techniques Concepts of non-destructive testing.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course,
• Students will learn how the plastics materials are tested for its chemical, mechanical, electrical, optical, thermal, and permanence properties.
• Students will be able to identify the plastic materials for some specified applications based on its property.
