Accelerated aging

Accelerated aging

Aging is a complex mechanism resulting from a combination of several elementary processes influenced by the following parameters:

  • Temperature + O2 = thermal oxidation - Light + O2 = photo-oxidation - Ionizing radiation + O2 = radio-oxidation
  • Moisture and water = hydrolysis
  • Fluid (liquid or gaseous) = extraction and plasticization
  • Static stress = relaxation and creep. At the LRCCP, accelerated aging may be simulated by the following means:
  • Chambers (T, UV, irradiation, O2, moisture, fluid, hyperbaric, etc.)
  • Functional test facilities (relaxation, creep, etc.)
