ULTRA NANOINDENATION TEST OF INJECTION POLYBUTYLENE TEREPHTHALATE (PBT) IRRADIATED BY LOW DOSES BETA IRRADIATION

Abstract

The influence of high doses of beta radiation on the changes in the structure and selected properties (mechanical and thermal) polymers were proved.  Using high doses of beta radiation for polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and its influence on the changes of mechanical properties of ultra nanohardness has not been studied in detail so far. The specimens of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) were made by injection moulding technology and irradiated by high doses of beta radiation (0, 33, 66 and 99 kGy). The changes in the microstructure and micromechanical properties of surface layer were evaluated using FTIR, WAXS and instrumented ultra nanohardness test. The results of the measurements showed considerable increase in mechanical properties (indentation hardness, indentation elastic modulus) when the high doses of beta radiation are used.
