X-Ray Glass (Radiation Shielding Glass)
X-Ray leaded glass is a radiation shielding glass that contains a high content of heavy metallic oxides. The heavy metallic oxides, most notably the lead oxide (PbO), provides the protective qualities against X-rays and Y-rays for use in the medical and technical fields. Despite the high metallic oxide content, Radiation Shielding Glass features high optical transmission, which makes it a perfect fit for view windows for X-ray rooms.
Other applications would include:
- Medical diagnostic screens
- Airport security X-ray screens
- Safety goggle lenses
- View windows for CT and angiography
- Protection windows & glove boxes in laboratories
Lead content is measured in percentage, and has a lead equivalency value associated with the content. The lead equivalency value is measured in millimeters and represents the thickness of a solid lead plate with comparable properties to the content of the lead in the glass.
Abrisa Technologies carries 8mm thick glass with lead content percentage of 55% – 65%, and a lead equivalency of 2mm.
X-Ray glass from Abrisa Technologies is available in sizes up to 31” x 29”
