    Abstract

    Plastic tubing and wire insulation were simulated by radiochromic dye dosimeter films having electron absorbing properties similar to the materials of interest (polyethylene and PVC). A 400-keV electron accelerator was used to irradiate from 1, 2, 3 and 4 sides simulating possible industrial irradiation situations. The results indicate that in most cases it is necessary but also sufficient to irradiate from two opposite sides.
