Radiation-shielding is a common problem in several fields: health care, industry and research.

Health care

The most common sources of ionising radiation requiring shielding are radioactive isotopes and radiology equipment, such as X-ray machines, CT scanners and radiology equipment in general.

For the powers used in these fields, the protection provided by  Bariblock® is extremely efficient and economic. Bariblock® is excellent for radiation-shielding, blocking the propagation of radiation to the rooms adjacent to the medical equipment. Bariblock® protects the health of staff in hospitals and medical-diagnostic clinics.

Industry

Bariblock® offers suitable shielding against radiation used in the industry for non-destructive testing on materials. It provides effective protection in nuclear plants or centres with production cycles that use radioactive isotopes.

 

Research

Bariblock® products are also an innovative insulating solution in scientific applications, such as shielding against radiation released by linear accelerators.
