Paper Abstract

An effect of electron beam irradiation on intelligent properties including mist resistance, wetting and hardness were studied for polymers. The electron beam irradiation decreased the time to clear vision on the misted polymers samples. The treatment was conformed to show the mist resistance of the polymer. To discuss the effect of electron beam on mist resistance, the water wetting indicated by the surface energy was evaluated by using contact angle of sessile drop. Based on ESR results, the effects of electron beam on the mist resistance were discussed. Electron beam irradiation broke the weakly bonded pairs in polymer and formed the dangling bonds. In addition, EB-irradiation enhanced Vickers’ hardness for polycarbonate.
