Low Activity Lead

 

Ultra Low Activity Lead shields low background detectors against radiation in physics, astrophysics and environmental research.

 

 

Our lead contains very low U, Th and K contaminations.

 

According to measurements performed in the laboratory "La Vue-des-Alpes" - web site http://www.unine.ch/phys/corpus/VdA/Main/Main.html

by J.-M Vuilleumier.

 

Concentrations of U, Th and K in our ultra-low activity lead, VG2 type, are:

 

CU = (29±12) 10-12  g/g 

CTh < 39 10-12  g/g

CK= (65±25)10-9  g/g  

 

Rectangular low-background lead bricks are ideal solution to temporary or permanent shielding of your very sensitive detectors. Low activity lead bricks offer the highest flexibility for construction very effective shields.
