This paper considers main types of organic polymers, which are now widely used and are the most resistant to ionizing radiation. It presents modern approaches to creation of radiation-shielding composite materials based on polymer matrix and various types of fillers. It also discusses the efficiency of sizes of fillers’ micro- and nanoparticles in terms of improving radiation resistance of organic polymer materials.
