Abstract: We present the results of study of the influence of low-energy ion beam irradiation on the
structure of the surface and hydrophobic properties of PET membranes. To perform it we characterized
ultrastructure, filtering and mechanical properties of the pristine and irradiated samples. Irradiation with a
low-energy C and H ions increases the hydrophobicity of membranes made from PET films, while a
decrease in strength properties is insignificant.
 
Keywords: PET film, radiation modification, hydrophobicity, water purification.
