Titan Scan Technologies (San Diego, Calif., U.S.A.) introduces its PrecisionScan electron beam systems and contract services to the plastics processing industries. Avoiding hazardous reactive chemicals and toxic by-products, the systems can be used for inline or standalone electron beam crosslinking of molded, extruded or formed plastics. According to the company, electron beam processing imparts "substantial and permanent" improvements in impact strength, abrasion resistance, heat stability, solvent resistance and other key performance properties, thus enabling inexpensive commodity thermoplastics to be used in place of high-cost engineered materials.
