Lead Bricks

Gamma and X-ray Radiation Shielding

Gamma and X-ray radiation shielding, which includes lead bricks, utilizes lead as a form of radiation protection to shield personnel from nuclear radiation. These bricks can effectively attenuate certain kinds of radiation because of its high density and high atomic number. Before you purchase lead shielding, it is important to know that it is not effective against all types of radiation. High energy electrons (including beta radiation) incident on lead bricks may create bremsstrahlung radiation, which is potentially more dangerous to tissue than the original radiation. 

Lead bricks can be used for shielding in x-ray / imaging facilities, hospitals, nuclear power plants, laboratories, military hospital and weapons facilities, and other places gamma and x-ray radiation exists. Other lead shielding we offer includes L-block shields, lead aprons, thyroid shields, including lead brick castles (lead brick caves), structures composed of lead bricks, lead sheets, lead foil, lead blankets, lead pigs, and lead-lined drums, leaded drywall, leaded glass, leaded acrylic, rolling lead shields, and other custom lead products. Other than radiation shielding, lead bricks can be used as ballast in ship building. 

Our bricks provide efficient and tight-fit radiation shielding when stacked. We can fabricate small walls, caves, boxes and containers of any lead thickness for your special requirements. These bricks are 99.99% virgin lead. They have a flat, clean, and porous-free surface.
