Abstract : Polypropylene, although possessing inherent mechanical toughness and a high crystalline melting point, is generally seen to be an unsuitable material for an irradiated cross-linkable polyolefine, primarily because of poor resistance to degradation of the polymer by irradiation and oxidation. There are two principal steps in developing flame resistant irradiated crosslinked polypropylene insulation. One is the application of a functional monomer to prevent the degradation of polypropylene by radiation dose, the other is the blend of thermoplastic elastomer to improve the elongation property of crosslinked polypropylene.
