RadSafe By Imaging Solutions is Australia's distributor of Corning® Med-X® Lead Glass. Corning® is a world leader in Radiation Shielding Glass offering the largest glass sizes available.
Lead X-Ray Glass
CORNING® Med-X® Lead Glass provides high-quality, transparent and safe protective shielding against X-ray radiation for medical, technical, and research applications.
Its high lead and barium content, and wide thickness range, provides optimum shielding against radiation from equipment operating in the 80 to 300 kV range. Corning® Med-X® lead Glass is supplied as polished plates with dimensions up to 2800 x 1400 mm.
Med-X® Lead Glass is supplied as polished plates from 3.5 mm to 20 mm thickness with dimensions up to 2800 x 1400 mm (54 “ x 108”).
- This allows architects to design viewing windows with a wider field of vision to maximize the observation requirements of the diagnostic operators.
- Smaller sizes can be cut to meet most of customers’ requirements.
- All cut edges are ground and finished with safety chamfers.
Laminating / Double glazing:
Med-X® Lead Glass is suitable for laminating using polyvinyl butyral (PVB) inter-layers and can also be fitted into sealed, double-glazed units for insulation purpose.
