Test results show the polymer substrate had a higher resistance to the chemical and physical tests than BoE paper except for the ironing test. In this test, where direct heat is applied (~160°C) the treated notes shrunk in size. This is characteristic of polymer banknotes.
With an upper melting point of 175 °C all polymers degrade to some extent at their processing temperature, and effect which increases with increasing temperature.
