Lead shielding is the process of using lead – a highly molecularly dense material – in order to protect individuals from scatter radiation exposure, often seen in radiology applications such as PET scans and x-ray imaging. At Mayco Industries, we offer various radiation shielding options among our lead-based products. With more than 30 years of experience supplying the radiation shielding industry with effective radiation protection, we are your trusted manufacturer of lead-based radiation shielding products.
In order to manufacture radiation shielding products, we keep lead sheet stock in bulk. By laminating the sheet lead into gypsum board, we create an effective radiation shield. Our team at Mayco Industries customizes a wide array of lead shield products such as lead-lined plywood and gypsum board. We can also pour heat controlled casks, allowing you to construct medical facilities out of lead bricks.

Lead as a Shield in Radiology Applications
Many of the machines used by radiology medical professionals produce radiation at harmful levels. Lead is a highly effective material at preventing the penetration of x-ray beams into individuals who are near radiology equipment, such as patients and medical staff. There are a variety of ways to protect the general public from dangerous exposure to radiation in radiology departments, including lead-lined walls, doors, and ceilings.
During a radiology procedure, clinicians oftentimes must remain in the exam room, making them vulnerable to secondary radiation exposure. It is important to have proper radiation exposure protection in various venues in which radiology procedures are performed, including cardiac labs, operating rooms, interventional radiology areas, and nuclear medicine labs.
