Effect of UV Ageing on the fatigue life of bulk polyethylene

Abstract : Polymers operating in various weathering conditions must be assessed for lifetime performance. Particularly, ultraviolet (UV) radiations alters the chemical structure and therefore affect the mechanical and fatigue properties. The UV irradiation alters the polymer chemical structure, which results into a degradation of the mechanical and fatigue behavior of the polymer. The polymer properties degradation due to UV irradiation is the result of a competitive process of chain scission versus post-crosslinking. Although few studied investigated the effect of UV irradiation on the mechanical behaviour of thermoplastics, fewer examined the UV irradiation effect on the fatigue life of polymers. This study focuses on investigating the effect of UV irradiation on the fatigue properties of bulk semi-crystalline polymer; the low density Polyethylene (LDPE). Tensile specimens were exposed to different dose values of UV irradiation then subjected to fatigue loading. The fatigue tests were achieved under constant stress amplitude at a frequency of 1Hz. The results show an important decrease of the fatigue limit with increasing absorbed UV irradiation dose.
