What is Radishield?
Radishield is a patented, laminated, flexible, elastomeric, lead filled system developed to protect workers in nuclear and associated industries from harmful x-ray and gamma radiation (radiation protection). It is designed to shield areas where traditional shielding materials such as lead cannot be used or are difficult to install. There are three different types of Radishield available:


Radishield – Silicone Lead
