Electron Beam Radiation (E-Beam)

Characterized by its low penetration and high dosage rates, electron beam (E-Beam) radiation is a form of ionizing energy that performs best when used on low-density, uniformly packaged products.

While most materials manufactured for use in sterile healthcare products are formulated for radiation stability, some materials - certain polypropylenes, for example - experience less breakdown and long-term aging effects as a result of E-beam's shorter exposure time.

E-Beam radiation is widely used to modify plastic and other materials to change or enhance their properties.
