Our lead glass provides optimum protection against x-rays in both medical and industrial applications.
The lead oxide content is more than 65 percent by weight and a relatively thin sheet of glass can achieve the density necessary to shield against ionising radiation.
Lead glass meets the requirements of International Standard IEC 61331-2:2014.
Typical Lead glass products:
- Plate glass for x-ray screens, windows etc.
- Polished vials for shielded syringes.
- Windows for glove boxes.
- Vision panels for lead lined doors.
We hold a good stock of plate glass. The table below shows the maximum sizes available. Lead glass can also be cut to size to suit your requirements or you can choose from a stock size or one of our many off-cuts.
