Regardless of the level of the radiation dose, the aromatic components of the oil have an adverse effect on the crosslink density (antirad agent).
Chemicals having an opposite effect, namely protecting polymers against the effects of radiation, are antirads. These compounds are certain aromatic amines, quinones and hydroquinolines.
