The achieved effects are crosslinking for heat-shrinkable products, increased melting points for cable insulation, and curing (polymerization) of coatings and inks. Some processes require tight dose specifications, but most are operated on the basis of achieved effects, rather than a specific dose measurement. The dose varies widely with the Radiation Dosimetry: Background and Principles 37 process and can be as high as 500 kGy. 1 to 10 MeV . Highenergy irradiation of polymers can convert them from dielectric materials to materials with higher electrical conductivity.
