This text examines the effect of radiation on polymers and the versatility of its industrial applications. By helping readers understand and solve problems associated with radiation processing of polymers, it serves as an important reference and fills a gap in the literature. Radiation processing can significantly improve important properties of polymers, however, there are still misconceptions about processing polymers by using ionizing radiation. This book explains the radiation processing of polymeric materials used in many industrial products including cars, airplanes, computers, and TVs. It even addresses emerging qgreenq issues like biomaterials and hydrogels.Keizo Makuuchi, Song Cheng ... The first commercial applications of UV curing were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and the oligomers were mainly unsaturated ... A famous early successful application was low energy EB curing for automotive coatings pioneered by Ford . ... This chapter will focus on the use of electron beams, X-rays and I³-rays for curing of composites and adhesives.
