abstract

  • Chemical and physical properties of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogel films were investigated as a function of production factors. The experimental results show that the gel fraction depends strongly on the radiation dose, the degree of swelling is inversely dependent on the concentration of PVA solution, the tensile strength depends mainly on the PVA blending ratio and the elongation at break is inversely dependent on the radiation dose.
