Reducing Environmental Stress Cracking in Plastic Parts (2023)

March 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

Environmental stress cracking
Around 25% of plastic part failures in the industry are related to Environmental stress cracking (ESC). Practically, it’s the leading cause of failure. ESC is often due to the combination of multiple factors (material, design, processing, in-use). You choose a wrong factor to focus on and you will find your entire time wasted! Reduce the occurrence of Environmental Stress Cracking in your plastic parts by joining Jeffrey Jansen (performed >1470 failure investigations). During this webinar, he will help you to:
  1. Get a grip on ESC by understanding its underlying mechanisms (ductile overload, creep model)  and factors affecting performance (materials, design..)
  2. Better prevent ESC with practical considerations derived from Jeff Jansen’s own experience (polymers, chemicals & situations with highest risk)
  3. Assess confidently whether your material is prone to ESC by using most suited test methods (ASTM D543, ASTM D1693..)
