How high-dose testing can be used to simulate radiation exposure for the nuclear industry

Nuclear reactors and radioactive materials play an important part in our society, such as the use of radioisotopes for medical treatments and the production of carbon-free energy. But using radiation in a safe and beneficial manner requires a deep understanding of the materials involved and their potential reactions to radiation. Shielding materials for medical isotopes […]

How does crosslinking improve wire and cable insulation?

When wire and cable is irradiated by electron beam, the electrons crosslink the jacket, improving performance characteristics – such as higher tensile strength, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, and improved thermal resistance at elevated temperatures – without changing the dimensional properties.
