Abstract : The effects of nuclear radiation at 2 fluxes (10 hr at 100 and 20 hr at 500 Kw) and at 72 to 95F on the hardness, tensile strength, % elongation, peel strength, and thermal rupture properties of four high temperature sealants (EC-1520, -1605, -1612; IE-1240) and one prefabricated fillet material (PR-1422) were determined.
