This publication is the final report of a coordinated research project (CRP) on radiation curing of composites for enhancing their features and utility in health care and industry. It presents achievements in the development of methodologies for new abrasion resistant coating formulations, radiation curable nanocomposites, new biodegradable packaging materials suitable for radiation sterilization and new methods to modify surface characteristic of nano-sized materials to enhance polymer fillers interaction. The results of the research work have proven that radiation processing is a technically and economically viable tool for the preparation of nanocomposites and nanomaterials. The research also demonstrated that radiation processing offers unique approaches to improve physico-chemical properties of composite materials in their final physical forms.
