The paper presents the results of experiments on the temperature dependence of thermal conductivity and heat capacity of some metallized polyimide films irradiated with electrons of energy 2-6 MeV. Accelerator ALU-6 was used to irradiate films with different integral doses (0-2 × 10-3 Gy). A cascade-probability model of generation of radiation defects in polymers (break of polymer chains) was developed. Such defects act directly on the process of heat transport and heat capacity.
