The Influence of Temperature on Photodegradation of Colored Polymers

A sharp decrease in the light-resistance of colored polyvinylchloride compositions with an increase in temperature was found. The synergistic effect of the influence of the light and heat is attributed by the autocatalytic character of the polymer dehydrochloration and should be taken into account during planning of accelerated tests and prediction of the stability of materials and items.
