The paper analyzes the results of studies regarding the cavitation-erosion wear resistance exhibited by polyolefins in neutral, acidic, and alkaline model environments. Methods for testing the stability of polymers, measuring the subsurface temperature, and performing photo and video surface wear registration directly in the course of cavitation are developed. A hypothesis on the thermomechanochemical model of polymer destruction in corrosive environments is put forward.
