X-Ray Shielding Glass

X-Ray shielding glass is essential for protecting against ionizing radiation where transparency is required. Typically this type of glass is used in hospitals, dental clinics and laboratories where material testing is undertaken.

Depending on the metallic oxide content of the glass, differing levels of protection can be achieved with different material thicknesses. The glass is denser than most other commonly used glasses, but can be softer and more susceptible to attack by acids and alkalis.

Characteristics of X-Ray shielding glass include:

  • Allows transparent protection against damaging ionizing radiation
  • High density
  • Low transformation temperature
  • Good electrical characteristics

Goodfellow Ceramic and Glass Division is able to supply a wide range of ceramic and glass materials as finished components. Our capabilities range from custom-made precision microcomponents with very high tolerance features to large heavy-duty components used in industrial applications. Additionally, standard semi-finished forms such as tubes, rods, bars, plates, crucibles and spheres are often available from our wide inventory. Please contact us with full details of your requirements, including drawings where available, and we will review and respond with a quotation as soon as possible.
