SCHOTT RD 50®Crystal clear radiation protection glass

At a glance

Reliable shielding, clear view

The composition of radiation resistant leaded glass from SCHOTT can be compared with solid lead and ensures excellent protection against gamma and x-rays. Lead oxide accounts for 65 percent of the weight of RD 50® radiation shielding glass. This makes these glasses a transparent alternative to other shielding materials.

Crystal clear and effective

Thanks to its high density, RD 50® achieves high x-ray absorption even when it is thin. It also meets the requirements of the German Institute for Standardization, European Standardization, and the International Electrotechnical Commission. RD 50® radiation shielding glass satisfies the requirements of DIN EN 61331-2 and IEC 61331-2.

Proper clear view

One important advantage during everyday use: glass resists scratches much better than plastic. SCHOTT radiation resistant leaded glass exhibit high UV resistance. When taken care of properly, they will last for a long time.

Custom service

SCHOTT supplies RD50® radiation shielding glass up to the maximum dimensions in every geometric shape. Upon request, SCHOTT even processes its radiation protection glasses in various ways: edge and beveled grinding, bored holes and cutouts are just as possible as processing into glass laminates that feature additional functions. RD50® can be processed into cast resin, film laminates and insulating glass or be designed with the help of screen printing. RD50® is available as RD50® MAGIRA® SmartView glass. As an extra service, SCHOTT would be happy to provide you with the names of appropriate suppliers located near you, regardless of whether or you are in need of cleaning agents, insulation material, profiles, other equipment or rolled lead.
