Lead Shielding Construction Materials
Lead shielding creates ionizing radiation protection due to its high molecular density. Effective at stopping gamma rays and x-rays, lead is used as radiation protection in construction materials for applications ranging from x-ray imaging and P.E.T. rooms to nuclear reactors. Radiation Protection Products’ partnership with industry experts assures you of the finest materials, engineering, and installation possible.
Pure Lead for Effective Radiation Shielding
Radiation Protection Products manufactures a full line of nuclear shielding and industrial lead shielding construction products using pure lead. After considering your lead shielding requirements with a licensed radiation health physicist, we will find the best lead shielding solution for your industry and application.
Benefits of Pure Lead Radiation Protection
At Radiation Protection Products, we use only the purest lead available for our radiation shielding products. As a lead-rolling mill, absolutely no refining takes place at our facility, making us one of the cleanest, most environmentally friendly providers in the industry.
The high-quality lead used in our radiation shielding products comes with many benefits and advantages when compared to other materials:
Takes up fewer square feet and costs less than other radiation shielding composites, metals, and materials
- Density and high atomic number create effective shielding against gamma and x-ray radiation
- One of the few metals able to be re-melted indefinitely without lessening in quality
- Soft, malleable, and corrosion-resistant
- Easily installed in barriers and walls or mounted on drywall and plywood
- 100% recyclable
Pure lead is well-suited to radiation protection in most industries, including nuclear, construction, non-destructive testing, and medical applications. Compared to other composites and materials, pure lead offers superior shielding that contains radiation effectively and protects workers from exposure.
