Abstract

In this paper, the damage and the failure response of modified unfilled and talc-filled high impact polypropylene were studied. Quasi-static uni-axial tensile tests were performed. For each of these two materials, pollutants were added during the extrusion-injection process. Therefore, the pollution effects on the damage and the failure response were characterized. In order to quantify pollution effects and also to correlate them with the microstructure evolution for a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the pollution process, SEM analyses have been made.
