Neutron Shielding

Neutron radiation is often used in medical (neutron radiography and radiation therapy), aerospace, nuclear, and explosives industries. Facilities using neutron radiation need to properly shield all room components including doors, duct work, walls, floors, and ceilings to eliminate health hazards.

Radiation Protection Products provides the following Neutron Shielding Materials:
