Abstract

Crosslinked glassy polymers are utilized in a diverse range of applications and environmental conditions. They are important because of their temperature stability and their resistance to scratching and environmental degradation. In order to exploit fully these polymers as structural materials, it is necessary to understand the relationship between the molecular structure of the polymer chain and the macroscopic physical behavior of the material. The primary objective of this study was to investigate this relationship in crosslinked methacrylate polymers. In the reported study, particular attention is given to the exploration of the effects of crosslinking density and temperature on the fracture behavior of polymers.
