This webinar will review the meaning of relative temperature index (RTI) in a plastic material and how it is determined. Our experts will discuss the requirements for a long term thermal aging (LTTA) program and why a plastic material used in an end product needs an RTI rating.
- When is an elevated temperature rating required?
- Critical properties of plastics when exposed to elevated temperatures
- Programs available to establish RTI ratings
