Asymmetric track-etched membranes based on polyethylene terephthalate have been prepared using two-sided irradiation on the heavy-ion accelerator DC-60. A process for cyclotron adjustment to bombardment of a polymer material has been described. A procedure for preparing asymmetric track-etched membranes with different pore lengths and sizes has been specified. The strength characteristics of the resulting membrane have been evaluated. It has been shown that the membrane can be used in processes in which the driving force is hydraulic or osmotic pressure.
