SCHOTT RD 30On the safe side

At a glance

Ensuring safety together in difficult situations

SCHOTT Radiation Shielding Glass provides excellent protection against gamma and X-rays. When it comes to shielding harmful radiation, no compromises are possible. This is why more and more customers in the fields of medicine, science, and industry are relying on radiation shielding glass from SCHOTT. Security made in Germany.
 

Working together with medical technology designers to realize ideas without any compromises

SCHOTT is the only company in Germany that manufactures radiation shielding glass, and processes it directly in an expert manner.

SCHOTT supplies RD 30® in maximum dimensions in every geometric shape. A key feature of RD 30® is that it is the only monolithic X-ray shielding glass with 0.5 mm Pb*. Upon request, SCHOTT processes radiation shielding glasses into various versions.


Realize product innovations with RD 30®

RD 30® offers planners, equipment manufacturers, designers and accessory suppliers in the field of radiation protection completely new possibilities and benefits for their developments. For instance, RD 30® is available in larger dimensions. Furthermore, it is non-flammable and more scratch resistant than acrylic. It is an ideal material that can be integrated perfectly into your designs.


Disinfection of radiation shielding glass
  • Only use water, a mild detergent and a soft cloth
  • RD 30® can be disinfected using commercially available disinfectants that SCHOTT has approved. Disinfection using ultraviolet irradiation is also possible.
  • Radiation shielding glass should never be exposed to moisture or temperature fluctuations in conjunction with moisture and acidic air.
  • Only use a sealant that is free of acids and alkaline substances (e. g. acetic acid, ammonia) during installation. Adhesive labels can cause discoloration if the adhesive reacts with the glass surface.
