Product Features

Dimension:

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.
