Medical Radiation Shielding
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.
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.
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 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.
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, Apertures and
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.
Globe is changing the world with composite solutions, and offers a full spectrum of services ranging from the initial material formulation, to the scalable production of your finished component.
