A radiation-resistant plastic scintillator has been developed to withstand the high radiation dose regions that will be present in the proposed SSC and LHC accelerators. The base is a highly transparent and radiation resistant polysiloxane plastic. This has been doped with a variety of radiation resistant fluors. The resultant scintillators have been shown to be highly resistant to 60Co gamma radiation for doses of 10 megarad
