Glass

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.
