Flat lead bricks are ideal for shielding projects that require protection against X-rays and nuclear radiation. If you are constructing a new building or refurbishing existing premises where radiation shielding is mandated, Mayco flat bricks can meet or exceed federal specifications for shielding requirements. Our lead bricks facilitate erecting, modifying, and relocating protective walls and caves for the containment of radioactive materials.
We carefully construct our lead bricks from the best raw materials, making them suitable for even the most demanding environments. With its great density, lead makes an effective barrier against radiation while occupying minimal space (see sizes below).
Coatings and Finishing
Considering the increasing focus on lead by environmental, health, and safety organizations, many of our customers prefer to have their lead parts encapsulated in some type of coating. These coatings prevent employees, contractors, and customers from having direct contact with lead. Mayco offers several solutions, including application of an epoxy-based paint system or powder coat encapsulation, as well as an uncoated option.
Uncoated lead bricks are ideal for jobs in which the bricks are encapsulated within a wall or container. Because there is a risk of direct contact with lead in the form of dust and residue, lead safety practices must be rigorously followed.
Epoxy is a lightweight compound of polymer resin and polyamine hardener. Mayco’s epoxy coating allows for the safe handling of lead bricks by greatly reducing human contact with lead. This is also the most cost-effective of the coatings that Mayco offers.
A powder coating is more durable than the basic epoxy coating. It will not chip, dent, or ding with standard use, and it allows for the same safe handling while remaining ecologically clean. Mayco’s powder coating virtually eliminates potential exposure to lead.
Lead Brick Sizes
Our lead bricks come in a variety of standard sizes. If you have a specialized project, we can manufacture custom sizes to match your specifications.
