Our lead glass provides optimum protection against x-rays in both medical and industrial applications. The lead oxide content is more than 65 percent by weight and a relatively thin sheet of glass can achieve the density necessary to shield against ionising radiation. Lead glass meets the requirements of IEC 1331-2 and DIN 6841. Plate glass We hold a good stock of plate glass. The table below shows the maximum sizes available. Lead glass can also be cut to size to suit your requirements or you can choose from a stock size or one of our many off-cuts.
