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


Available in standard thicknesses ranging from 6.0-23.0mm.

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

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

RS Glass Series


  • RS 253

  • RS 253 G18

  • RS 323 G19

  • RS 360

  • RS 520


These specifically developed Radiation Shielding Glasses provide high shielding capability and resistance against ionizing irradiation for applications in Nuclear Energy Production and Nuclear Waste Treatment (high long-term light transmittance and discharge resistance).

RS 360 and 520 are doped with Cerium Dioxide to prevent browning caused by  high-energy radiation-induced ionization.

Available as finished blocks, plates and customized castings.
