industrial application

Nuclear technology has plenty of applications in industry some of which is unique. In oil industries, well digging and non-destructive tests are the main applications of irradiation. Industrial radioisotopes can be used for density, depth and surface measurements.
Irradiation of polymeric products can not only modify physical and mechanical properties of them but also create added value. Tires irradiation causes cross-linking which increases the mechanical strength and life time of tires.
Irradiation has played a significant role in advances in electronics and semi-conductors in a way that ICs and chipsets are now widely produced by ion-implantation techniques.
Cable and wire production facilities, car manufacturers, gem stones production industries apply irradiation for modification or even creation.
