In thermoforming processes, the sagging of a polymer sheet is an extensional deformation.
The sagging behavior of PP and ABS was studied in an air circulating oven that was set at a temperature of 190[degrees]C.
In the sagging experiment, a sheet sample was put in the oven for 12 minutes to ensure a distinguishable amount of sagging could be obtained for different polymers without tearing of the polymer sheet.
The local extension ratio of the ABS sample could not be measured accurately because ABS gave very little sagging and there was insignificant deformation of the grids.
In this experiment, the sagging of each polymer was measured three times and the average of these values were used for analysis.
