Lead Glass Discs - Lead Glass Pro

Lead Glass Discs

Lead-glass discs are used in medical settings to help shield from radiation. They can be used in medical imaging centers, cancer research centers, and hospitals.

What Is A Lead Glass Disc?

A lead glass disc is a type of specialty glass made by impregnating lead into the glass. This creates molten glass that is then cast into discs that are usually between 2 and 18 inches in diameter, although smaller or larger discs are available.

These discs can also be made with high iron content, which creates a lead glass that is yellow in color. At high iron levels, lead glass discs can be used for certain radiation applications.
