It has been demonstrated that both artificial and natural weathering does practically not change tensile load at break, notchless impact, oxygen index and cracking resistance of PET reinforced with 30% glass fibre and containing 5% red phosphorus as flame retardant. Relative elongation at break of this product chan ges slightly after weathering. It has been found that 6 months of natural weathering are equivalent to 500 h artificial weathering.
