BORATED UHMW POLYETHYLENE SHEET AND PARTS

Grades:  3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 30% ,40%,50% boron by weight available, the more boron content, the better the radiation shielding effect.
1)-Replaces lead in nuclear shielding applications.
2)-Easy to handle and fabricate to a variety of shapes and parts.
3)-Superior dimensional stability over a wide temperature range.
4)-High hydrogen content and added boron.
5)-Lighter weight and lower cost than lead.


Most radioactive fields consist of different types of radiation. The most common include fast neutron, thermal neutron, primary gamma rays and secondary gamma rays.XINXING borated polyethylene  is a borated polyethylene neutron shielding designed to attenuate these types of radiations.

  • Fast Neutrons are most effectively shielded by hydrogen. XINXING polyethylene shield has an inherently high concentration of hydrogen, over 13% of volume.

  • Thermal Neutrons are shielded by polyethylene with the presence of boron, such as XINXING Shield Industrial Grade with 5% boron by weight.

  • Secondary Gamma Rays are created by the capture of thermal neutrons by hydrogen. These captured gamma rays can be minimized by adding boron, resulting in a significantly reduced energy dosage of only .42 MeV.
