Sheet Lead For Radiation Shielding

Ultraray Radiation Protection stocks Sheet Lead in a great variety of sizes, shapes and thicknesses to ensure speedy delivery of the material. With purity of 99.5% and higher, our Lead Sheeting is the best material of choice in any design for X-Ray or gamma ray shielding. Its high malleability, density and consistency offer easy shaping of the material, and also provide maximum protection with minimum thickness to suit your application.

Some characteristics of our sheet lead that make it the most commonly used lead radiation shielding material for many applications:

  • Density: Lead sheeting provides better shielding against radiation compared to a thicker layer of plaster, glass or concrete. Its limpness also offers superb soundproofing capabilities. 

  • Malleability: Lead is highly malleable and can be easily shaped to match the client’s radiation shielding specifications. We can build it into, or add it to walls, doors, and window frames for effective radiation protection. 

  • Resistant to Corrosion: Our sheet lead exhibits extreme resistance to atmospheric corrosion. It is resistant to salt water, and most commercial and industrial chemicals, which makes it the ideal material for waterproofing.

We keep popular size in-stock to provide fast & convenient delivery or pickup or delivery. Additionally, our CNC team is able to accomodate custom sizes of sheet lead to match all applications. 

We extensive knowledge and experience in industries including Medical, Dental, Veterinary, Nuclear, Security and Detection, Checkpoint and Defense, NDT, and Construction. We will provide the right lead radiation shielding expertise for your application while meeting all safety and environmental regulations and standards.

Sheet lead has long been the material of choice for x-ray room & medical imaging construction. Because lead has a low level of neutron absorption, it emits practically no secondary radiation.Lead sheeting, even after long periods of radiation exposure will not become radioactive. In any imaging facility where space is at a premium, sheet lead has the advantage of being dense, easily fabricated, and available in a variety of forms. We offer Common, Chemical or Antimonial lead at any required thickness. We can also custom bond sheet Lead to Lined Drywall /Plywood for the same level of protection, with greater structural support. As required our technical and QA team will provide tailored Certificates of Conformance (CofC) and First Articles of Inspection (FAI).
