Every year, Lemer Pax uses several hundred m³ of radiation resistant glass to carry out all its standard projects and products.
Loaded with cerium oxide for very high radiation resistance or with lead oxide for dose rate reduction, in single sheets or thicker blocks measuring 10 centimetres and more, our range will help you solve all your viewing problems in ionising environments.
Stabilised glass is used on the hot side to protect the shielded glass from dust, scratches and impacts. It seals off hot cells (Alpha Glass). It is also used to protect lead glass blocks from high dose rates that can cause browning and dielectric charges (lead glass blocks are more sensitive than stabilised blocks).
Intermediate blocks are used to reduce the dose rate and protect the lead glass block from browning.
Note: LPX-400 is a grade with high resistance to browning but low optical transmission. This range is not one of our standard products (minimum order: 10 tonnes).
LPX-650 and LPX-700 laminated lead glass is typically used to protect against gamma and X-ray radiation. This glass is also used for our standard production of SLLGB (unbreakable) laminated lead glass blocks.
LPX-800 lead glass is used for lead glass blocks with high dose rate attenuation.
Used with our exclusive “SLLGB” (unbreakable) technology, LPX-900 Extra clear protection glass is optically connected to each optical face of the leaded glass block, offering the following advantages:
When the accumulated dose is less than 1000 Gy, this cost-effective version presents excellent mechanical and optical qualities for sealing hot cells (Alpha Glass).
Normal glass blocks offer high transparency and density providing biological protection equivalent to that of standard concrete.
Used for its very high chemical resistance, boron glass also has good thermal shock resistance (can withstand temperatures up to 450°C).
Thanks to their high ionising ray absorption capacity and high light transmission, Lemer Pax radiation-resistant glass has applications in industry, medicine and research, to make viewing windows – also known as radiation-resistant windows – and screens.
Lemer Pax creates glass blocks through optical assembly of lead glass sheets. The block is a laminate with unmatched strength, especially when it comes to impact resistance.
This technology allows the company to produce very thick blocks, to simplify the design of radiation protection windows.
With this technology, each optical face of the lead glass is protected by extra clear protection glass. It provides four major advantages in terms of light transmission:
After many years of research and development, Lemer Pax is today a leader in this type of manufacturing.
Thanks to our exclusive SLLGB laminated lead glass block technology, Lemer Pax creates optical assemblies that enhance and preserve the optical performance of your glass blocks, making them stronger and easier to care for.
This technology makes working with glove boxes very safe.
