Radiation Shielding Glass


SCHOTT Radiation Shielding Glass




Due to its Lead Oxide content of ≥65%, RD50 provides radiation protection by absorbing ionizing Gamma and X-Rays

Excellent internal transmission

High quality fire polished surface finish

More scratch resistant than acrylic

Much thinner than acrylic with same effect


We hold standard sheets in stock that can be cut to your required dimensions.

Available in standard thicknesses ranging from 6.0-23.0mm.

Increased thickness requirements for higher lead equivalence can be obtained through laminating multiple sheets.
