article description
The main objective of this article is a study of the possible use of irradiated polymer products after their lifetime period. Irradiated HDPE pipes were used for this research; the main advantage of cross-linking polyolefins is their crosslinking ability without the need of the cross-linking agent. However, the main problem is that the cross-linked material cannot be reprocessed by method of plastification. Focus of research lies in a study of mechanical properties.
