Paper Abstract

The polymer layers from carbazolylmethacrylates (CAM) with oktylmethacrylates (OMA) were prepared and investigated by us. The investigation of mechanical properties of such materials are extremely important, whatever the successful application might be. Load and depth sensing indentation with a Berkovich indenter were performed in order to evaluate the mechanical properties of polymer films. The effective elastic modulus and the hardness were determined on the basis of load-displacement data. The reliability of the chosen analytical method was checked using of number of repeats. The influence of chemical composition, action of UF-light and aging on the mechanical properties of CAM:OMA polymer materials was investigated.
