Elastomers in High Energy Radiation

 

If you are interested in presenting at the event please contact the event champions: Stephen Millington (Artis) or Izaak Watson (Martin’s Rubber).

This webinar will focus on the use of elastomers and elastomeric-like materials in high energy applications. Elastomeric materials may be required to perform in a wide range of conditions, including

exposures to ionising radiation. Talks will cover the latest developments in the use of high energy radiation and the challenges that elastomers face in these applications.

This afternoon technical discussion meeting will discuss and address the benefits and challenges of using elastomers in high energy radiation applications.

RIEG's Afternoon Technical Discussion Meeting (ATDM) series is the main platform for the technical and scientific community in the UK to discuss the use of rubber and elastomer materials. 

Three take away benefits for participants attending this event:

  1. Challenges facing the use of elastomers in nuclear and high energy radiation applications with current advances in technology
  2. Available solutions for elastomers in nuclear and high energy radiation applications.
  3. Networking
