Abstract

Degradation of electron beam irradiated high-density polyethylene was studied by positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS), micro-FT-IR, and gel fraction measurements. The obtained results indicated that ortho-positronium intensity is influenced not only by the irradiation but also the post oxidation, which illustrates that PALS may be a promising tool to monitor/evaluate the degradation of polyethylene induced by irradiation and long-term storage.
