Abstract: Abstract Compounds based on poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), and containing CaCO3 filler and trifunctional acrylic crosslinking agent have been crosslinked by exposure to γ‐rays at dosages to 70 kGy. The crosslinking agent was found to be essential for crosslinking to proceed, only minor sensitivity to the irradiation having been found in compounds omitting the chemical. The presence of filler somewhat inhibits crosslink effectiveness, as measured by solvent uptake data. Elastic moduli and elongations at rupture r…
