Abstract:

A summary is presented of the material relating to the action of radiation on polymers, published in Soviet and other literature. There is examined generally the regular radiation-chemistry of high polymers, the possible mechanism of action of processes and their peculiarities, and changes of chemical, physical, mechanical, and electrical properties of polymers during irradiation. Results are given of the action of radiation on different classes of polymer materials plastics polyethylene, polystyrol, polymethylmethacrylate, polyvinyl chloride, polytetrafluorethylene, and others, natural and synthetic rubbers carbon-chain, silicon, fluor-, and chlorcontaining, and fibers. The pamphlet is intended for scientific and engineering-technical workers, interested in the possibility of utilizing radiation in the chemistry of high polymers and in changing the properties of polymer materials under the action of ionizing radiation.
