Development of flexible neutron-shielding resin as an additional shielding material

Sukegawa, Atsuhiko; Anayama, Yoshimasa*; Onishi, Seiki; Sakurai, Shinji; Kaminaga, Atsushi; Okuno, Koichi*

Soft-type neutron shielding resin has been developed by improving an existing hard-type neutron shielding material by the epoxy-based resin as the additional shielding material. A flexible heat resistant neutron shielding material has been developed, which consists of newly polymer-based resin with boron. The neutron shielding performance of the developed flexible heat resistant resin by the $$^{252}$$Cf neutron source is almost the same as that of the polyethylene. The outgas of H, H$$_{2}$$, NH$$_{4}$$, H$$_{2}$$O, CO, O$$_{2}$$, C$$_{4}$$H$$_{10}$$ and CO$$_{2}$$ from the developed resin have been measured at high temperature environment (250$$^{circ}$$C) by thermal desorption spectroscopy methods. The soft-type resin and the newly developed heat resistant resin will be applied to prevent the effects of the neutron streaming and to control the movement of vibrated pipe as the seal material around the plumbing in the future fast reactor and the innovative fission reactor.
