MarShield’s Leaded Acrylic / Plastic is the shatter-resistant, versatile answer to all of your x-ray shielding needs! Our Lead acrylic is not lead glass. It’s a unique, versatile, transparent plastic that contains 30% lead by weight. It combines superb light transmission with effective radiation protection. It is available in six different lead equivalencies and thicknesses (see chart below). The lead equivalency and thickness are directly related; the higher the L.E. the thicker the piece of leaded Acrylic.

Applications

  • Mobile Barriers – Viewing windows for portable or stationary barriers.
  • Modular Control Booths – Viewing windows for X-Ray Control Booths.
  • Windowpanes – Door glazing, Viewing windows in leaded wall systems and as lenses for safety goggles or other types of machines.
Key Features
  • Available in six different lead equivalencies and thicknesses.
  • Made from an acrylic polymer resin into which lead is chemically introduced as an organ-lead salt compound.
  • Can be cut, drilled or machined using standard plastic-handling techniques.
  • Provides complete radiation protection with unmatched design flexibility.
  • Ideal for any radiation shielding application.
Benefits
  • Create “open feel” environment for personnel/patients while still providing reduced exposure to harmful radiation
