The susceptibility of two types of energy-saturated materials (composition VS-2, which is an energy-saturated metal-inorganic compound with minor additions of a polymer binder, and an energy-saturated composite of NCP and fullerene) preirradiated with β particles and γ quanta to irradiation with a high-current nanosecond electron beam is studied. The obtained results demonstrate that the preirradiated energy-saturated materials are significantly more susceptible to electron irradiation. This effect lasts for at least eight months and is more pronounced in the case of gamma-preirradiation.
