Project Description

Borated Polyethylene Sheet for Neutron Shielding

Borated Polyethylene is a product specially designed for neutron radiation shielding with 1% to 30% boron by weight and high hydrogen content. It is made to meet all applicable applications for healthcare cancer treatment centers, diagnostic and hospital facilities. Applications include linear accelerators, nuclear or radiation shielding, industrial use, security such as seaports and airport security, nuclear submarines, nuclear power plants, border protection and other applications requiring attenuation of thermal neutrons.

  • Grades: 1%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 30% boron by weight available 

  • Borated UHMW-PE and HMW-PE grades

  • Replaces lead in nuclear shielding applications

  • Easy to handle and fabricate to a variety of shapes and parts

  • Superior dimensional stability over a wide temperature range

  • High hydrogen content and added boron

  • Lighter weight and lower cost than lead
