How does scission occur using electrons?
Electron beam processing can boost properties by creating controlled degradation – or chain scission in certain materials. As an example, by delivering a precise electron beam dose that will break down materials, for example PTFE, to create a micropowder that can be brought to a specific particle size. Specific particle sizes are increasingly useful in products such as inks, coatings and lubricants.
Chain scission via electron beam also modifies polypropylene, resulting in a more homogenized melt flow.
