dc.description.abstract The main advantages of Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomers (TPE-E) are their elastomer properties as well as their ability to be processed in the same way as thermoplastic polymers (e.g., injection moulding, compression moulding and extrusion). However, TPE-Es' properties, mainly their mechanical properties and thermal characteristics, are not as good as those of elastomers. Because of this TPE-Es are often modified with the aim of improving their properties and extending their range of application. Radiation cross-linking using accelerated electron beams is one of the most effective ways to change virgin polymers' properties significantly. Their electrical (that is to say permittivity and resistivity measurements), mechanical (that is, tensile and impact tensile tests), as well as surface (that is, nano-indentation) properties were measured on modified/cross-linked TPE-E specimens with and/or without a cross-linking agent at irradiation doses of 0, 33, 66, 99, 132, 165 and 198 kGy. The data acquired from these procedures show significant changes in the measured properties. The results of this study allow the possibility of determining the proper processing parameters and irradiation doses for the production of TPE-E products which leads to the enlargement of their application in practice. © 2018 by the authors. en

utb.fulltext.sponsorship Our great thanks belong to our colleague and co-worker, David Manas, for his long lasting cooperation and supervision of numerous academic diploma works and theses. David was a promising—and highly regarded pedagogue and scientist; and a leading person in the research area presented in this article. He passed away unexpectedly in mid-September 2017, at the age of only 42. We were honoured to work with him. May his soul rest in peace. The authors of this article would especially like to thank the firm—BGS, Germany, and Michal Danek especially, for their kind assistance in the realisation of radial cross-linking. This work was supported by the European Regional Development Fund under the project CEBIA-Tech Instrumentation No. CZ.1.05/2.1.00/19.0376 and by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic within the National Sustainability Programme project No. LO1303 (MSMT-7778/2014).
