Aging and Degradation of Printed Materials

Joanna Izdebska-Podsiadły


The chapter is dedicated to the issues of aging and degradation of printed polymeric materials and the changes occurring in the polymers. First, the concept of aging and degradation is explained. Then the method of accelerated aging is described. Furthermore, the types of degradation and changes in polymeric materials caused by different types of processes are presented. Consequently, the test methods that can be used to study the degradation of polymer substrates as well as examine the changes of the prints due to aging are described. The remainder of the chapter presents the results of aging and degradation of the various polymers used as printing substrates and prints made on films.
