The Effect of Ionizing Radiation on Cyclic Olefin Polymer (COP) Color

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of ionizing radiation on the color of COP vials. An evaluation of the color intensities produced by varying Electron Beam (E-beam) radiation doses was performed. A study was performed to determine the visual degree of color dissipation at different E-beam doses over the course of three months. Technical Bulletin Series 2020-016
