Rigid, weatherable PVC compounds used in the building products industry must have superior initial impact properties and maintain these when subjected to various environmental conditions. For instance the impact strength of a rigid PVC formulation changes when the temperature is lowered from ambient to sub-zero, when it is exposed outdoors, and when different types and quantities of impact modifiers are used. To measure the aforementioned changes, instrumented as well as more conventional impact testing techniques are used.
