“Shielding Solutions You Can Look Through: Leaded Glass and Leaded Acrylic” is the title of the new white paper available on the MarShield website, marshield.com.
Shielding Technician Paul Rochus compares and contrasts both leaded glass and acrylic in the white paper. It also includes information about material composition, gamma attenuation and lead equivalences, clarity, and durability.
“Two common and reliable solutions to provide safe shielding; lead X-ray glass or clear lead acrylic,” Rochus noted in the white paper. “Both materials are used in a variety of applications, from windows in NDT Rooms, to small windows on tungsten vial shields.”
