Abstract

The method of stress relaxation has been used to study the effect of ketones on polyethylene as it changes with temperature. From the observation of the stress relaxation in polyethylene under ketones and its temperature dependence, the activation energy of penetrant-enhanced relaxation of polyethylene caused by ketones were obtained and the effect of ketones on polyethylene were discussed.
