MarShield has 35 years of experience in the manufacturing of leaded wool blankets
MarShield has 35 years of experience in the manufacturing of leaded radiation shielding products. We can advise on various materials to use and can supply any configuration for lead blankets to best address your requirements.
1. Vinyl laminated nylon sheeting can be exposed to temperatures of 125°F max. The colour of vinyl laminated covers is usually yellow, but other colours are available.
2. Silicon-impregnated fibreglass can be exposed to temperatures of 500°F max. The colour of the high temperature fibreglass material is gray.
Outer covers are made using heavier weight material (typ. 18 oz.), with edge seams heat sealed or sewn as required. Perimeter grommets are installed on the outer cover border edge to facilitate job site placement or hanging from racks. Number 5 grommets (5/8″ ID) at 12″ spacing are standard. Grommet size, type and spacing can be as specified by your requirements.

Where greater shielding is required, multiple blankets can be stacked to achieve a linear reduction in dose rate.
