Lead-free x-ray protection plasterboard

07/02/2019

Saint-Gobain recently launched X-Ray Protection, a plasterboard that protects against x-rays.

Lead-free x-ray protection plasterboard

It is manufactured using plaster and barium sulfate, which provides the board with radioprotection properties and avoids the need for lead sheet.

Its effectiveness has been verified by an independent Public Health England laboratory. This solution can be used wherever x-ray and radiotherapy machines require x-ray protection for both patients and staff: hospitals, clinics, radiology departments, dental surgeries, veterinary clinics, etc. The board is also 100% recyclable and lighter making it easier for contractors to install.

This solution is available in Italy, France and South Africa.
