The influence of Electron Beam (EB) irradiation on the impact properties of Polyamide-6/Polyisobutylene (PA-6/Pffi) blends has been investigated. Maleic anhydride modified PIB has been used. EB irradiation, which has been performed after the final processing step, results in controlled scission of the dispersed phase, i.e. lower cavitation stress of the Pill rubber. As a consequence, a decrease in brittle-to-tough transition temperature has been observed.
