What size of parts can I have e-beam crosslinked?

The first thing to consider is that the parts are transported through the e-beam on a conveyor system using carts with the beam shooting down and through the parts. These carts vary in size. In New Jersey the carts measure 60 x 48 inches and in Ohio they measure 98 x 52 inches. In addition

Will electron beam crosslinking improve the thermal resistance of my polyethylene molded part?

Polyethylene is the most commonly electron beam-crosslinked polymer. Regardless whether it is LDPE, LLDPE or HDPE, it will crosslink with sufficient dose. The effect of the crosslinking will be a dramatic increase in heat resistance, as well as an improved impact resistance at low temperatures and a number of other property enhancements.
