Since the 1990s, published research has consistently demonstrated that safe thresholds for formaldehyde exposure exist. In 2011, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) identified understanding the effects of inhaled formaldehyde vs. formaldehyde produced naturally by the human body as a key area to expand scientific knowledge. Today, new research by the University of North Carolina (UNC) has clearly identified the range for scientifically-based safe formaldehyde thresholds.

Applications of Scratch Testing on Polymers

Article | June 11, 2021

Polymers have been used in many consumer and industrial areas for many years. They have several advantage compared to metals such as low density, chemical resistance and easy production. However, polymers have generally lower wear and scratch resistance than other materials and therefore these properties must be carefully controlled. Since the beginning of the 20th century polymers found their place in many applications in daily life and industry. Their production is relatively simple and they can be formed into many different shapes. The market of polymers is developing fast and new polymers appear very frequently.
