Radiation crosslinking of polyolefins has gained interest for the development of advanced heat-shrinkable materials. Propylene homopolymer (PP1), polypropylenepolyethylene block copolymers (PP2, PP3) and their mixtures with 3 wt.% of bisphenol A dimethacrylate (BPDMA) crosslinking agent were irradiated with 25–150 kGy of accelerated electrons and were compared for aforementioned purpose. The studied mechanical properties indicated increased elongation in the presence of BPDMA that was… CONTINUE READING
