BGS: your specialist for radiation crosslinking

 “What we do, we do with energy”

Under this slogan, BGS Beta-Gamma-Service GmbH & Co. KG has been irradiating a wide range of products for more than 30 years now, as a service to industry.

By using the energy from beta or gamma rays, we improve the material properties of plastic parts (radiation crosslinking) and/or destroy any microorganisms that may be present on the product (radiation sterilization).

Enhancing Polymer Properties by Radiation Crosslinking

Radiation crosslinking gives mass-produced plastics and technical plastics the mechanical, thermal, tribological and chemical properties of high-performance plastics.

The main polymers to undergo crosslinking are polyethylenes, polyamides and special thermoplastic elastomers. For all articles, irradiation always takes place independently, after the moulding process (e. g. injection/extrusion/blow moulding/rotational moulding) has been completed.

Sectors that rely on BGS for radiation crosslinking include:

Electrical industry (Fuse systems, housings, plugs, coilformers, MIDs, cables/wires, shrinkable products)
Automotive industry (Components exposed to high temperatures and chemical influences, e.g. in engine compartments and exhaust systems)
Heating/ plumbing (Underfloor heating pipes, pipes for drinking water supply, fittings)
Other sectors (Mechanical engineering components, foils, semi-finished products, fibre-reinforced composites, packaging materials such as e.g. closures)

Radiation sterilization:

Medical products sector (Implants, wound management systems, dialysis systems, infusion products, catheters)
Biotechnology sector (In vitro diagnostics, blood sampling systems, disposable syringes, cell culture vessels, bioreactors, pipettes, Petri dishes)
Packaging materials (Closures, tubs, tubes, bottles, bag-in-box systems, primary packaging materials for the pharmaceutical industry)
Miscellaneous (Raw materials, foods, animal feeds, archives and much more)

All processes are certified for compliance with ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 13485 and EN ISO 11137

About us

Company details

Under this slogan, BGS Beta-Gamma-Service GmbH & Co. KG has been providing irradiation services for a wide range of products for more than 30 years to industry.

By using the energy from beta or gamma rays, the material properties of plastic parts (radiation crosslinking) are improved and/or destroy any microorganisms that may be present on the product (radiation sterilization) are destroyed.

Enhancing Polymer Properties by Radiation Crosslinking
Radiation crosslinking gives standard and technical plastics the mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties of high-performance plastics.

The most important polymers for an upgrading by crosslinking are polyethylenes, polyamides, PBT and special thermoplastic elastomers. In most cases, irradiation takes place in a second process step, after the moulding process (e.g. injection/extrusion/blow moulding/rotational moulding) has been completed.

Industries that rely on BGS for radiation crosslinking include:

Electrical industry
Fuse systems, housings, plugs, coilformers, MIDs, cables/wires, shrinkable products

Automotive industry
Components exposed to high temperatures and chemical influences, e.g. in engine compartments and exhaust systems

Heating/ plumbing
Underfloor heating pipes, pipes for drinking water supply, fittings

Other sectors
Mechanical engineering components, foils, semi-finished products, fibre-reinforced composites, packaging materials such as e.g. closures

Radiation sterilization

The advantage of radiation sterilization is, that products can be treated in their final packaging (boxes, pallets) within very short time and that the treatment is without any residues.

Medical products sector
Implants, wound management systems, dialysis systems, infusion products, catheters

Biotechnology sector
In vitro diagnostics, blood sampling systems, disposable syringes, cell culture vessels, bioreactors, pipettes, Petri dishes

Packaging materials
Closures, tubs, tubes, bottles, bag-in-box systems, primary packaging materials for the pharmaceutical industry

Miscellaneous
Raw materials, foods, animal feeds, archives and much more.

All processes are certified for compliance with ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 13485 and EN ISO 11137.
