Tools and methods for determining oxidative stability can be useful, but even more useful if constructed to yield the information you really need.


The DSC test can do a reasonably good job of capturing the comparative behavior of materials that use similar antioxidant chemistries.

MATERIALS: The Importance of Oxidative Stability in Polyolefins
Because oxidation is a process that causes materials to deteriorate over time, its effects or potential for those effects are not always apparent when new products are tested.
