The incubation process of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) upon 337.1 nm UV radiation was investigated. It was found that the number of incubation pulses is a reciprocal square function of the fluence. Transmission measurements do not show polymer absorption changes during the incubation process. To explain the incubation curve, the percolation model is used.
