Thickness and Lead Equivalent
|Lead Equivalent (in)||*1/16″||*5/64″|
|Lead Equivalent (mmPb)||1.6||2.0|
|X-Ray Tube Peak (kV)||150||150|
*Lead equivalent is guaranteed in (mmPb). The converted fraction (in.) is less than the lead equivalent (mm Pb); fraction is approximate.
**13mm Saf-T-Lite™ is special order only (10-12 weeks) – 4 week lead time at additional cost.
Uses and Applications
- Window of a portable X-Ray barrier/shield
- Inspection window inside a lead-lined door
- Any application where lead lined safety glass is specified/required
