Hybrid Polymer X-Ray Shielding Material


A hybrid polymer X-Ray radiation shielding material is invented by the head of our Research and Development Department Miss Sukran CAN.

X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation. X-Rays have a wavelength in the range of 10 to 0.01 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (30×1015Hz to 30×1018Hz) and energies in the range 120 eV to 120 keV.
X-Rays are primarily used for diagnostics in medical imaging, radiography and crystallography. X-Rays are a form of ionizing radiation and as such can be dangerous.

Today, primarily lead plates are used to protect people from X-Ray radiation. However, lead is a toxic metal that is slowly attacked and corroded by air, water and soil acids. Also, water-soluble lead compounds, such as lead carbonate, tend to persist in the environment for long periods of time and are highly toxic to humans and other forms of life.

Lead tends to accumulate in the body, similar to other heavy-metal poisons, and continues producing toxic effects for many years after exposure. Therefore, it is desirable to eliminate lead from many of its present uses, including radiation shielding, and to find substitutes for lead.

Our X-Ray radiation shielding material is a chemical compound of many organic and inorganic materials so that it shields X-Ray radiation.

This X-Ray radiation shielding material can be used in many areas like in research laboratories, in medicine, industry, agriculture or military.

Our X-Ray radiation Shielding hybrid polymer has many advantages over lead shielding plates. Our x-ray radiation shielding hybrid polymer 100% stops the x-ray radiation, It is lighter than lead plates,it can shape easier than lead plates, it is economic .

Another important specification of our hybrid polymer X-Ray shielding material is it is not toxic for human beings and for environment. Our X-Ray Radiation shielding protect people from X-Ray radiation in every place where it is used.


To have clearer idea some points must be emphasized in this kind comparison. Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material is not an ordinary material . Our material is friendly to health of people and friendly to environment.

1- Today lead is used to shield X-Ray radiation . It is said that radiation is shielded and the people working in that area are protected..
But this not completely true. When lead is used to shield a radioactive source, by the effect of radioactive heat lead starts to oxidize and poisonous lead oxide gas created. This is the number one reason of lung cancer, throat cancer and skin cancer. So in some people health problems start. Huge amounts of money is spend to cure the illness.

2- Used lead waste is another very big problem for the humanity and environment. Because lead is a poisonous metal. We have to wait hundreds of years to overcome the poisonous effect of lead on environment.

So in comparison how we will place a monetary value to human health. Because life is priceless and everything should be done, regardless of cost, to save the health of individual.

3- As another point, it is not true to compare two materials.One material (lead) toxic and very harmful to environment and human life the.The other material Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material is not toxic and friendly to environment and to human.

4-In fact, after the invention of Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material , lead must not be used for X-Ray radiation shield. This is a necessity for human health and for environment. Politicians and the decision makers have to think on this subject.

5-Our invention Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material density is another advantage. Density of lead is 11.34 g/cm3 and density of Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material is only 3.67 g/cm3

6- The life time of Hybrid X-Ray radiation shielding material is very long. It can be used for 15 years.
