Radiation shielding glass from SCHOTT provides a clear view while protecting against gamma and x-ray radiation. Whereas SCHOTT RD 30® is used for low-voltage x-rays tubes, SCHOTT RD 50® is designed to withstand exposure to high-voltage x–rays and gamma radiation. The radiation of both SCHOTT solutions is comparable to that of solid lead. Lead oxide accounts for 65 percent of the weight of RD 50® and 22 percent of RD 30®. This makes both products an ideal choice in finding highly flexible solutions for hospitals, medical offices and research laboratories.

Thanks to its high density, RD 50® achieves high x-ray absorption even when it is thin. It meets the requirements of the German Institute for Standardization, European Standardization, and the International Electrotechnical Commission. RD 50® meets the requirements of DIN EN 61331-2 and IEC 61331-2. Colorless RD 30 is used in electrical medical devices manufactured according to DIN EN 60601-2-45.

Furthermore SCHOTT’s anti-radiation glasses are ideal transparent alternatives to other shielding materials. Glass is in comparison to other synthetic materials more scratch-resistant. In addition radiation shielding glasses from SCHOTT provide high UV stability and are designed to offer many years of service if properly maintained.
