Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Aged Helmet Outer Shells Made of Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene


Abstract:
Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) material is widely used as a protective rigid shell and impact absorber in bike helmets, providing vital protection against head injuries under specific working conditions. However, ABS aging in helmets could affect the safety factor of helmets and shorten the service life. Exploring the transformation during aging process for real assembled helmets made of ABS out shells is crucial for the investigation and fabrication of high performance helmets. Herein, the effect of long-term aging on the physical properties of practical helmets made of ABS outer shells has been discussed systematically. Four different types of helmets were subjected to different aging conditions, i.e., outdoor environment, ultraviolet exposure, hot air, and humid-heat conditions. The impact property and stiffness tests were carried out as a function of aging time and aging conditions. The measured helmets were capable of meeting engineering tolerances when aged under outdoor, ultraviolet, and hot air conditions, and could deliver competitive mechanical performance to their pristine helmets. Yet, after aging under humid-heat for 800 h, the helmets showed an obvious decrease in impact strength, gloss, and stiffness. The influence of different aging conditions was further investigated by thermal and spectral characterizations. The study might provide some valuable advice for helmet performance evaluation.
