Our Radiation Shielding Glass is a high quality optical grade lead barium glass with more than 60% heavy metal oxide including at least 55% lead oxide with sizes up to 96”x48”. The glass offers visual clarity and high light transmittance, but does not discolor due to radiation. Both glass surfaces are mirror polished.
Our standard 7mm thick lead glass shields up to 1/16” (1.6mm) @ 150Kv X-Ray Peak voltage but we can achieve higher lead equivalency by laminating multiple layers of glass together.
This glass is used to shield a variety of x-rays in medical and industrial facilities.
Note: Due to the manufacture process and the chemical make-up of the lead glass, it cannot be tempered. If safety is required for your project, check out to our Safety Radiation Shielding Glass.
