How do I convert from ETO or Gamma to E-beam sterilization?

  Whether you’re looking for faster processing time or something more environmentally friendly, e-beam can be a great choice for terminal sterilization. However, the thought of going through the conversion process from an existing sterilization method can have those of you in quality hiding under your desks. The bad news? Yeah. Not gonna lie. It’s […]

Radiation Chemistry Rules: What is Glass Transition Temperature?

amorphous polymer structures

Electron beam crosslinking  can enhance different polymer properties such as tensile strength, impact strength, high-heat properties, abrasion and chemical resistance, and environmental stress crack resistance. But not all polymers crosslink. So how can you tell if your polymer is a good fit for e-beam crosslinking? One of the factors that help us know if a […]
