SCHOTT RD 30 ® radiation shielding glass for mammography & analytical equipment

Ensuring safety together in difficult situations

SCHOTT radiation shielding glass provides excellent protection against gamma and X-rays. When it comes to shielding from 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.

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.

 

    Summary:

  • RD 30® is the only monolithic drawn radiation shielding glass solution
  • clear glass
  • machine drawn
  • low lead oxide content
  • especially developed for mammography market
  • also applied within industry, e.g. for non-destructive material testing
  • less expensive than alternative and thicker “cast” glass and acrylic solutions
  • better scratch resistance than acrylic alternatives

Protection meets an almost reflection-free view

The combination of SCHOTT radiation shielding glass RD 30® with the anti-reflective glass SCHOTT AMIRAN® opens up new possibilities for architects, planners, device manufacturers, outfitters and accessories suppliers in the field of radiation protection windows / doors, because the reflections in comparison to conventional radiation shielding glass can be reduced to a minimum. The laminated glass AMIRAN® / RD glass / AMIRAN® offers the best solution for transparency, quality and security requirements.

The combination of SCHOTT radiation shielding glass RD 30® with SCHOTT AMIRAN® ensures the well-known protection against radiation and provides a clear view especially in the examination area. The anti-reflective radiation shielding laminated glass is only slightly thicker than the actual radiation shielding glass and is easy to clean on both sides.

  • Reduction of residual reflection by more than 90 %
  • High transmission (93 %)
  • High mechanical and chemical resistance ensure a long service life and easy cleaning Almost invisible and color neutral enables a perfect viewing
  • Best possible protection of the RD glasses also in the construction as laminate
  • Glass structure made of AMIRAN® / PVB / RD glass /PVB / AMIRAN®

SCHOTT RD30 ®  is unique due to…

Uniqueness of SCHOTT radiation shielding glass:

  • RD 30® is the only monolithic X-ray protection glass with 0.5 mm Pb*
  • RD 30® can be bent into different versions and is also available as toughened glass

Other advantages of SCHOTT radiation shielding glass:

  • RD 30® is available in large sizes
  • RD 30® is non-flammable
  • RD 30® is more scratch-resistant than acrylic
  • higher lead equivalents can be achieved by using composites
  • RD 30® is available with holes and cut-outs in the desired sizes
  • RD 30® can be provided as raw material or finished component and processed:
    • edge and bevel grinded
    • drilled
    • curved
    • processing into a glass composite
    • toughened
    • cast resin
    • pvb-film laminated
    • insulating glass in combination with e.g. sound control or heat protection function
    • screen printing

Area of applications:

  • mammography, protecting staff, while improving observation and reassuring patients
  • specified for analogue and digital mammography
  • providing protection within a security mail scanner
  • can be tempered and curved to suit design and protection criteria
