Ionizing Radiation Effect of HDPE Measured by Nano-Hardness

Abstract:

Article Preview

This article deals with the influence of different doses of Beta radiation on nanomechanical properties of High-density polyethylene (HDPE). These nanomechanical properties were measured by the Depth Sensing Indentation - DSI method on samples which were non-irradiated and irradiated by different doses of the β - radiation. The highest values of nanomechanical properties were reached at radiation dose of 99 kGy, when the nanohardness values increased by about 23%. The purpose of the article is to consider to what extent the irradiation process influences the resulting nanomechanical properties measured by the Depth Sensing Indentation method.
