Disposing plastic articles ·is becoming a major problem in municipal waste management as its degradation process takes quite a long time and contributes to mounting landfill and clogging of the drain. Therefore, this study is conducted on the usage of prodegradant in enhancing the degradation process. The study also determined the optimum level of prodegradant in a polypropylene film. Polypropylene film is widely used in agricultural, medical and household applications. The investigation focused on thermal degradation where the plastic is exposed to heat for a certain period of time. The changes in mechanical and physical properties due to the exposure are monitored. Oxygen-Induction-Time (OIT) test was performed using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to observe the effects on thermal properties. It is concluded that prodegradant incorporation in PP film significantly accelerates PP film thermal degradation. A prodegradant of 0.1 wt% is adjudged as the optimum level.
