Learn About RoHS Compliant HGCs w/ Globe Composite & Composites Weekly

By Globe Composite

Globe Composite Solutions' research and development team recently spoke with Composites Weekly magazine about our patented, lead-free, RoHS compliant, radiation shielding, HGC (high-gravity composite) materials.  Read on to learn how this fully cast-able, cost- efficient, and eco-friendly material is transforming a wide variety of industries.

What Are HGCs?

HGCs are high-gravity composites, also known as high-gravity compounds. They are called 'high-gravity' because of their high density, ranging from 2 g/cm³ to 11 g/cm³ -- almost as dense as aluminum or lead.  Lead, for example, has a density of 11 g/cm³, while aluminum has a density of 2.7 g/cm³.  Often called "lead-replacement" materials, Globe's Brandonite® HGC is an ideal replacement for a wide variety of lead-based applications.

What Are HGCs Used For?

HGCs are typically used for radiation shielding applications, ranging from:
