Heat Aging, Oven Aging exposure is performed in calibrated ovens on engineering polymers that may experience elevated temperature exposure in applications ranging from automotive to industrial.
Oven aging is often used to accelerate the aging process. It is also a way of simulating conditions the specimen may be exposed to in the product lifetime. Standard testing can be performed on the aged samples and comparison can be made to non-aged samples.
The samples are placed in an aging oven. The temperature and duration are specified by the customer. The specimens are removed and tested after oven aging is complete.
Sample size is dependent on the tests to be performed after the aging process.
