Plastics radiation crosslinking in critical infrastructure

Plastics radiation crosslinking…

Critical infrastructures and related products such as cables, wires, pipes, hoses and electrical safety components influence our lives every day. Functionality, safety and reliability are basic requirements here. In this presentation, Dr. Michal Daněk and Peter Jorsal will talk about the importance and added value of radiation crosslinking for the safe operation of critical infrastructure. One large and important product group that particularly benefits from radiation crosslinking and which will be looked at in more detail is shrink profiles. Casing joints contribute significantly to the safe and reliable operation of district heating and cooling systems. Peter Jorsal from Kingspan explains all the advantages that result for customers and installers.

The lecture will take place on September 29, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Free registration is online.

BGS Beta-Gamma-Service extends an invitation to the BGS Irradiation Service Days for the second time in a row. The 28 September is about the use of electrons and gamma rays for sterilization of medical devices.  On 29 September, experts from science, research and industry will discuss new technologies and findings in plastics technology as well as the potential of radiation crosslinking.
