Changes in the mechanical properties of polyimides induced by electron bombardment

  • 20 Accesses


The change in the tensile strength and relative elongation of PM polyimide with absorbed dose has been investigated. It is shown that after irradiation with very large doses (∼5 · 1010 rad) the mechanical properties are still satisfactory.
