Polymer Crosslinking

 The crosslinking process involves accelerating a beam of electrons to near light speed. It then passes through a scan chamber, and transitions into a curtain of electrons. Materials moving through the chamber on a high-speed conveyor system are showered with these high-energy electrons. These electrons penetrate the material with a precise, predetermined dose and–depending on the material being processed and the dose that is being applied–several different beneficial changes occur.
