Electron Beam Curing of Composites Overview 2000-01-1525

Electron beam curing is a very fast, non-thermal curing method that uses high energy electrons and/or X-rays as ionizing radiation at controlled rates to cure polymer matrix composites, making them more affordable. A number of programs and initiatives are now actively evaluating the materials and processes for applications as varied as next generation aircraft, space transportation, military ground vehicles, and others. This technology offers a variety of potential benefits to the transportation industry.
