Lead Glass Shielding

glassLead Glass : Glass containing lead oxide; has a high refractive index.

The lead has a high atomic number, 82, much higher than the normal constituents in glass; it also has a high atomic mass that increases somewhat the density of the glass.


•   X-Ray Shielding Lead Glass for medical and nuclear protection

X-Rays used in medicine, especially diagnostic x rays, often have relatively low energies as far as ionizing radiation goes, and this makes for strong attenuation.

The Lead Glass used in windows often has amounts of lead added that make the window equivalent in attenuation to 1 to 2 mm of pure lead.

X-Ray Shielding Glass : Lead Glass is an extra sense flint glass with lead content of 54%, designed to provide a high quality transparent protective shield against X-ray radiation. Raygard is especially useful for medical treatment, imaging, testing, inspection, or energy production when clear view and radiation shielding is of absolute priority in diagnostic, therapy, isotopic, or nuclear reaction sources.
