Abstract

Indoor accelerated and outdoor field weathering of styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene block copolymer have been studied by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. In the indoor accelerated experiments, specimens are exposed to ultraviolet-visible light with wavelengths ranging from 295 nm to 600 nm and one of four environments involving the combinations of temperatures and relative humidity (RH): (a) 30C at
