EFFECT OF LOW BETA IRRADIATION DOSE ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF SURFACE LAYER OF INJECTION MOULDED POLYAMIDE 11 (PA 11)

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 polyamide 11 (PA 11) and its influence on the changes of mechanical properties of surface layer has not been studied in detail so far. The specimens of polyamide 11 (PA 11) were made by injection moulding technology and irradiated by low 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 microhardness 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.
