Breakdown of Methyl Methacrylate Polymer by High-Energy Radiation

Abstract

THE behaviour of polymethyl methacrylate (‘Perspex’) when exposed to high-energy radiation is markedly different from that of many other longchain polymers such as ‘Polythene’ and polystyrene1. These latter develop cross-links forming a thermosetting material, whereas polymethyl methacrylate shows rapid breakdown after relatively short radiation doses. The… (More)
