The turning out to be use of polymer composites is resulting in an expanding call for for fractographic services. Fractography is the learn of the fracture floor morphology and is an important device for advancing the certainty of self assurance in composite structural habit. Fractography provides an perception into harm mechanisms and underpins the advance of bodily dependent failure standards.

Sample text

The rectangles in the graph above represent spectrophotometric measurement of the sample in its colourless state, implying that it either was not exposed to UV (first cycle) or had undergone a 10-min lapse since its last exposure to UV (consecutive cycles). The triangles represent the measurement points of the sample in its coloured state, implying that the sample either was exposed to UV for the first time (initial cycle) or had undergone x number of exposures, depending on the cycle. Grey triangles represent cycles from 1 to 10, while the black triangles represent cycle 11 to the final 20th cycle.

22 Surface of the thermochromic textile printed with ‘red’ microcapsules after lightfastness testing (5000Â original magnification). 23 Surface of the thermochromic textile printed with ‘red’ microcapsules after wash-fastness testing (5000Â original magnification). 24 Surface of the thermochromic textile printed with ‘red’ microcapsules after rub-fastness testing (5000Â original magnification). 5 Conclusion Commercially available organic microcapsules or composites represent an excellent building block for smart textiles aimed towards delivering reasonably simple medical devices that can be used to monitor patients’ body temperature.

Light fastness properties were measured according to ISO 105 B02. 65 W/m2. For this purpose, a Q-SUN XENON test chamber was used. Reflectance curves of the samples were obtained on a Macbeth Color Eye 7000 spectrophotometer. Spectrophotometric measurement was carried out before and after each fastness tested. e. 20). Most of the tests done to determine the fastness properties caused severe deterioration of the microcapsules, except for the rubbing, in which the microcapsules resisted major damage from the Crock-meter and retained most of their thermochromic capabilities.
