Abstract

Microscopic investigations of polymers are not only employed in research but also in quality-control and failure analysis. The amount of information depends strongly on the preparation procedure (microtomy, surface or thin section polishing) and on the selection of microscopic contrast. The paper demonstrates the potential and the advantages of new etching techniques. Investigations on POM, PE, PP and thermoplastic compounds are presented.
