Relative Radiation Stability of Medical Polymers


Physical properties of irradiated polymers are subject to

variations due to: 1) Stress (residual and functional), 2)

Section thickness, 3) Molecular weight distribution, 4)

Morphology, 5) Moisture, 6) Environmental (oxygen

temperature) and must be tested in the specific application

under consideration
