Lead-Lined Plywood

Lead plywood Lead-lined plywood

ROS offers plywood laminated with sheet lead that is designed to cover necessary surfaces or walls in a room requiring radiation shielding. Lead-lined plywood is ideal for a variety of applications, including new construction or shielding upgrade/renovations for PET and other types of diagnostic imaging rooms, or add additional protection between lead-lined drywall and interlocking lead bricks.

Key Features of Lead-Lined Plywood:

• Meets or exceeds Federal Specifications QQ-L-201F, Grade C, ASTM B-749-03 Standard Specification for lead and lead alloy strip, sheet and plate products.
• Fire-retardant plywood conforms to AWPA C27 type A.
• Lead sheet is 99.9% pure, or better, of un-pierced virgin lead, free of dross, oxide inclusions, scale, laminations, blisters, or cracks.
• Lead sheet is factory laminated to plywood panels.
• Available in 5/8” to 3/4” in thickness with a lead thickness of 1/16” no less than 1/2” maximum thickness.

Lead Plywood Thickness and Weight:

Lead lined plywood is typically recommended for heavier lead shielding requirements, usually when the lead shielding exceeds 1/8” thick.

Lead Lined plywood at these thicknesses becomes very heavy to handle in full sheet form (4’x8’). We recommend having us cut the lead lined plywood into widths that equal your on-center stud dimensions (e.g. 12” or 16”). This will make the lead lined plywood much more manageable for the installer.

1 sheet of 3/4”x4’x8’ plywood, with 1/4” lead lining to 7’, weighs apprx. 505 lbs
1 sheet of 3/4”x16”x8’ plywood, with 1/4” lead lining to 7’, weighs apprx. 168 lbs
