Radiation resistance with respect to mechanical properties of organic materials used in the superconducting magnets for the 50 GeV - 750 kW proton beam line for the J-PARC neutrino experiment was studied. Specimens cooled at liquid nitrogen temperature of 77 K were irradiated by gamma rays beyond 10 MGy. The flexural strength of glass-fiber reinforced plastics (GFRPs), the tear strength of polyimide films and the tensile lap-shear strength of adhesive films were evaluated. It was verified that the organic materials used in the superconducting magnet have a sufficient radiation resistance, and the degradation of their mechanical properties after 10 years operation was estimated to be negligible.
