Mar behavior of thermoplastic olefins Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Work has recently been conducted at Texas A&M University to evaluate the mar resistance of thermoplastic olefins using a modification of a currently established ASTM standard (ASTM D7027-05). This work strives not only to examine how the "mar" is formed but also to illustrate the potential for this methodology to be established as a quantitative method for evaluating mar resistance of polymers. Approaches to improve mar resistance of polymers are also discussed.
