Well-Seasoned on All Forms Of Radiation Shielding

X-Ray Glass

Radiation Protection Products’ leaded x-ray glass delivers superior visual clarity and high light transmission with little or no distortion. Suitable for many uses and primarily in the medical industry, lead-lined x-ray glass provides high-grade protection against gamma rays and x-rays.

Effective Radiation Protection with Lead-Lined X-Ray Glass

We use the purest lead available in all our radiation shielding products, ensuring the best use of your budget and space while providing the most effective lead shielding possible. Our optical-grade lead glass contains 38% lead and 15% barium, resulting in a light amber colored glass suitable for installation in screens, walls, and doors.

Available Lead-Lined Glass Configurations

Equivalencies for our leaded x-ray glass are based on 150kV, with higher lead equivalencies available upon request. Our x-ray shielding glass is available standard in 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, and 3.2mm equivalencies. We manufacture our high-grade lead-lined glass in accordance with the Lead Industries Handbook and NCRP Applicable Reports to ensure our radiation protection supplies meet or exceed Federal Specification DD-G-451.

We also offer specially designed laminated lead shielding glass that consists of 1/16” leaded glass laminated to a piece of clear float. This design helps meet state specifications requiring both safety properties and lead properties in all vision panels.

High-Grade Radiation Protection for Medical Applications

While leaded glass is used throughout various industries, it is critical in medical applications. Our leaded glass and leaded x-ray glass barriers have been used in applications such as:

  • X-ray, CT scan, fluoroscopy, and P.E.T. imaging observation windows
  • Protective windows in laboratories
  • Protective screens for medical diagnostics
  • Windows for airport security x-ray stations
  • Lenses for safety goggles worn during radiation testing
  • Radiation shielding for nuclear plants and storage stations.
