Abstract

This irradiating process for certain polymers using N(2)O improves the stabilization of molded or machined parts produced from the treated material. Irradiation of high-density polyethylene and nylon 66 is accomplished by placing the parts in polyethylene bags that are filled with N(2)O prior to sealing. The sealed containers are placed on trays on a conveyor belt for irradiation. The use of sealed containers and a conveyor system provides a continuous processing under ambient conditions free from vacuum or pressure chambers and related complicating factors.
