How It Works

Plasti-Shield® is an effective shielding material with 5% boron by weight to meet all relevant applications in healthcare such as cancer treatment, diagnostic, and hospital facilities.The best materials for shielding neutrons must do three things: moderate or slow down neutrons, absorb slow neutrons, and shield against any resulting radiation.
