    As of present, plastics - especially recycled plastics with a mixture of a wide range of molecular components - may not always provide the reliability (predictability) and physical characteristics desirable in a product over its lifetime. The failure of the plastic "bar" in the video is an example of how such materials can suddenly fail under stress - versus deforming without breaking.

     

    All of us have experienced failures of plastic devices and components which if were constructed of more durable material would have performed better and longer. As demonstrated with composite construction in the aerospace industry, plastics can provide satisfactory performance and even superior performance under the right design, fabrication, application and use. Care must be taken to ensure safety and reliability are achieved in the final application of a product when dealing with brittle materials.

     

    I would like to know what types of testing and analyses are being used in the manufacturing process to insure quality and reliability of the final product.
