Radiation Shielding for the Medical Industry

Globe is a trusted name in composite-based Radiation Shielding components for the Medical industry. Our materials are specially formulated to protect staff and the public from exposure to harmful x-rays. Globe's radiation shielding High-Gravity Composites (HGC), have won two patents for its family of RoHS compliant HGC compounds - all part of Globe's portfolio of cost-effective Brandonite® composites.  

In the Medical industry Brandonite® HGC provides equivalent x-ray shielding properties to lead or litharge while possessing essentially the same physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties.

X-Ray Shielding
Globe can design and manufacture various radiation shielding components for C/T scanners, X-Ray machines, as well as bone density and mammography scanners. These components improve durability, resiliency and service life since traditional lead components easily wear and deform. Ideal replacement components include tube covers, collimators, apertures and EDM carriers, and modules.

Structural HGC Components
We make composite materials that are ideal for lightweight, durable and resilient equipment housings for diagnostic and treatment equipment.

Use Composite Replacement Parts
Do you have hard to find parts or the OEM no longer supports or supplies the part? We can take an existing part and make replacement parts for you that perform even better than the original part. Globe has designed and manufactured a wide variety of replacement components specifically designed for clients in the Medical industry

How can we help your company?

Sample Medical Products

The team at Globe Composite can design and produce a wide variety of Radiation Shielding equipment from all or mostly composite-based materials. We can custom blend these materials to exactly meet your product’s specific requirements, so you can rest assured that your part will perform as expected- each and every time. 

Anode & Cathode Tube CoversAnode & Cathode Tube Covers

Brandonite® HGC is a cost-effective polymer-metal composite that has been developed to replace lead and lead-encapsulated epoxy for anode and cathode ray tube covers in x-ray applications.

Radioisotope Carriers

Radioisotope Carriers

Globe’s lead-free Brandonite® HGC materials are ideal for manufacturing radioisotope transport carriers generally used in nuclear medicine. These materials are available in rigid, semi-rigid and flexible variations.

Collimators and AperturesCollimators, Apertures and
X-Ray Covers

Globe components improve durability, resiliency and service life since traditional lead components easily wear and deform. Our composites are ideal for tube covers, collimators, apertures and EDM carriers, and modules.

Case Study: Carbon Fiber Composite Screw

Learn How We Created a Small Part for a Big Problem

In the day-to-day operations of a CT/PET/PT scanner operator, several different components are often altered, adjusted, and removed to accommodate patient needs. Unfortunately, during this process, the screws and fasteners used in the machine could be dropped onto or into the bed of the scanner causing damage to the scans and even the machines themselves.

Our client came to Globe Composite to develop a solution that was cost-effective, non-magnetic, and meets the most stringent of performance requirements. Thus, the Carbon Fiber Composite Screw for CT/PET/PT Scanners was born.
