Lab 4 Polymer Coupons

Satisfactory Essays
The purpose of this lab was to test four different polymer coupons under a tensile load and determine mechanical properties. This was done under normal circumstances along with the samples soaking in different temperature water baths before being tested. It was found that Nylon 6 was the most brittle sample and that High Impact Polystyrene was the most elastic. It was also found that there is a general trend of materials getting more brittle when colder and more elastic when warmer.
