This text examines the effect of radiation on polymers and the versatility of its industrial applications. By helping readers understand and solve problems associated with radiation processing of polymers, it serves as an important reference and fills a gap in the literature. Radiation processing can significantly improve important properties of polymers, however, there are still misconceptions about processing polymers by using ionizing radiation. This book explains the radiation processing of polymeric materials used in many industrial products including cars, airplanes, computers, and TVs. It even addresses emerging qgreenq issues like biomaterials and hydrogels.5.4 POLYETHYLENE PIPE 5.4.1 Application and Properties of Crosslinked Polyethylene Pipe The use of plastic pipes is growing in construction and engineering markets to replace metal (copper and steel) pipes due to their light weight andanbsp;...
