Lightweight materials can be a central component in climate-neutral production. Plastics are often effective in this context. However, depending on the application, they have to stand up to high temperatures and extreme conditions. Radiation crosslinking of thermoplastics offers new potential for lightweight construction as conventional plastics can also be qualified for demanding tasks with this refining process.
