The industrial use of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) radiation is growing rapidly and now penetrates an ever-widening range of applications, including electronics, printing, packaging. Resources and references for seasoned professionals abound, but few effectively introduce the field to newcomers or provide fast access to specifics on UV and EB effects on particular materials. This book does both.Radiation Technology for Polymers systematically presents the practical aspects of using UV and EB radiation to treat polymeric materials. Drawing on more than 30 years of engineering experience in polymer processing, the author describes the production and properties of UV and EB energy, explores processes associated with both types of radiation, and provides a detailed overview of their applications. He concludes with a look at recent developments and emerging trends in equipment, chemistry, and technologies.Whether you are an engineer or scientist new to radiation technology or a product or process designer researching the effects of radiation on a specific material, Radiation Technology for Polymers is the place begin your search for information. It offers a complete overview of the technology and provides valuable direction to sources of more specific, detailed data.show more
