Materials Modification



E-BEAMING TECHNOLOGY
The use of radiation through electron beam technology as a means of changing the molecular level in polymers and other materials is well established. These modifications can be, depending on the polymer and its additives:
  • Reticulation
  • Curing
  • Chain scission
  • TREATMENT RESULTS
    The enhancements which result from e-beaming include:
  • Improvements in heat resistance (increments up to 80ºC)
  • Improvements in chemical resistance
  • Improvements in mechanical strength (resistance to deterioration and abrasion)
  • Pulverization of PTFE
