Abstract

For the commercial production of consumer products using engineering polymers, it is very important to control physical properties of the material. However, due to many technical reasons, e.g. cost reduction, cleaning issues, using scraps etc., the quality control of the material is not easy. In many cases, the effect of a small amount of foreign polymers on product failures is well known, but it is difficult to analyze them by conventional analytical techniques. So, in this paper, the methodology of evaluating the durability of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) copolymer containing the second polymers using fracture mechanism maps is introduced. In addition, the importance of the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT) as a quantitative tool is discussed.
