Teijin Launches Low-cost, Radiation-fluorescent SCINTIREX Plastic
 

Tokyo, Sept 10, 2011 (JCN) - Teijin Chemicals Ltd, the core company of the Teijin Group's plastics business, announced today that it will begin supplying SCINTIREX, a revolutionary low-cost radiation-fluorescent plastic, in late September.

Teijin Chemicals will process and supply SCINTIREX for use as scintillators, the core material in radiation detectors. It is expected to be used by universities, research institutes and manufacturers in some applications including radiation detectors and medical equipment.

Teijin Chemicals believes that SCINTIREX will help to reduce the total cost of radiation detectors by slashing the production cost of scintillators to one tenth or less of current levels.

SCINTIREX has a special molecule structure and emits blue fluorescence when exposed to radiation. It is superior to conventional scintillators in terms of luminescence, refractive index and density. Because it is a polyester resin, SCINTIREX also offers easier moldability.

Detectors equipped with SCINTIREX can be used for radiation management at nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel processing facilities and radiation stations, such as those in hospitals. It also has a wide array of other applications, including radiation-inspection equipment at airports, harbors and rail stations and aerospace hardware.

SCINTIREX is a proprietary polyester resin developed by Teijin Chemicals in cooperation with Kyoto University Nuclear Reactor Research Institute and the National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Japan.
