Borated polyethylene is a product typically used in the medical field to shield neutrons. Made from high density polyethylene plastic with 5% boron content by weight, this material provides exceptional durability over a wide temperature range. Borated polyethylene is available from Radiation Protection Products in standard-sized sheets (48" x 96" x 1"), as well as in blocks, slabs, and custom-size sheets.
Borated polyethylene is easy to work with, fabricate, and install, making it ideal for a wide range of shielding applications, such as high intensity x-ray rooms, medical vaults and vault doors, nuclear energy or storage facilities, particle accelerators, hot cells, and more.
