Abstract : The 'Weatherability of Polystyrenes and Related Copolymers and Terpolymers' is the second in a series of reports on the weather resistance of non-reinforced plastics. It covers the effects of weathering components on polystyrenes; exposure testing methods; means of stabilization and the effects of colorants. Weathering test data are presented in 19 tables and 39 figures. Also, examples of outdoor applications are given. The report contains 73 references including the bibliography. (Author)
