  • Visible under x-ray imaging
  • Shield people from x-ray generating sources
  • Processable through conventional injection molding and extrusion
  • Customizable for density, color, and other physical properties
  • Retain desirable attributes of lead while avoiding toxicity issues

Specialty compounds can be formulated that absorb the radiation that occurs during x-ray imaging. These Radiopaque Compounds can be used in the manufacture of medical instruments, making them visible under fluoroscopy, or as a shielding material in devices that emit radiation energy. In their shielding capacity Radiopaque compounds provide a functional alternative to lead-based materials.
