Abstract: Abstract Detailed, instrumented impact tests were carried out between about − 100 and 60°C for flexible poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), and polypropylene (PP) films. Secondary impact transitions in addition to the main transitions were detected for all three films, indicating that multiple impact transitions may be far more general in occurrence than commonly expected. Wide frequency (from 0.05 to 100 Hz) dynamic mechanical spectra of the same materials were also generated over simil…
