X-Ray Shielding Glass
LX-57B X-Ray shielding lead glass offers excellent radiation protection and superb visual clarity. The polished surfaces are scratch resistant and LX-57B does not discolor due to radiation. LX-57B X-Ray shielding glass comes in three thicknesses.
“Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.”
|Thickness||7 mm (1/4")||9 mm (3/8")||15 mm (9/16")|
|Lead Equiv. (mm)||1.6||2.0||3.0|
|Minimum Density gm/cm||4.36||4.36||4.36|
|Weight -- lb/ft2||6.55||8.19||13.11|
|X-Ray Peak Voltage KV||150||150||200|
|Max. available size||48" x 96"||48" x 96"||48" x 96"|
LX7 may be installed in a double assembly for greater protection. Please call for further details.
Note: For applications requiring safety-impact resistant glazing, LX-57B is available with a surface applied film and in a laminated configuration.
LX-57B glass surfaces are mirror polished. Using Moh's hardness scale, LX-57B tests at Level 6 (comparable to feldspar, a constituent of granite). Acrylic tests at Level 3 (equivalent to calcite, a constituent of limestone and chalk).
Technical Glass Products only supplies X-Ray Shielding Lead Glass west of the Mississippi and throughout all of Canada. Please check with TGP for availability and lead time.
CARE & CLEANING
MAINTENANCE & CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR X-RAY SHIELDING LEAD GLASS PRODUCTS
As a high lead content glass, LX glass is more susceptible to staining as compared with normal window glass. Pay attention to the following precautions for installation and cleaning.
- Do not stick anything on the surface of the LX glass during the installation. (When masking tape is used in caulking, remove it immediately after caulking and wipe off any tape traces with alcohol.)
- Do not use a wet cloth or water to clean the LX glass. Immediately wipe off water in case the LX glass becomes wet.
- When the LX glass becomes dirty or marked with fingerprints, polish the surface slightly hard with a dry, clean cloth like gauze using alcohol. Wipe the LX glass again afterwards with a new, dry and clean cloth to completely remove the alcohol remaining on the surface.
