Abstract

The thermal expansion coefficient of gamma irradiated polyoxymethylene has been measured in the temperature range 80–340 K by using a three terminal capacitance technique. The radiation induced changes are measured by recording the i.r. spectra of the irradiated samples. The change in crystallinity caused by irradiation is measured by an X-ray technique. The thermal expansion coefficient increases with radiation dose below 170 K due to the predominant effect of degradation. Above 170 K, this trend reverses and the expansion coefficient decreases with radiation dose due to the increased crystallinity caused by irradiation.
