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 wool blankets to best address your requirements.
MarShield lead blankets are made using lead wool, but lead plate is available. Lead wool is the preferred material due to its flexibility in handling. It consists of fine strands of lead from .005 to .015 inch diameter, of varying length. MarShield supplies lead wool products in accordance with Federal Specification QQ-C-40 Type II Grade C. We compact this interlaced wool in a random orientation to ensure consistent attention without streaming.
