Artemis Shielding products and solutions utilize commercially available proprietary formulated and engineered Thermoplastic Polymer Alloys to bind the various dispersed high atomic numbered elements instead of lead, to shield people from radiation. It’s no secret that lead and radiation are individually dangerous with lasting adverse health effects.
So why would anyone use lead to protect against radiation? Artemis Shielding products are non-toxic, Prop 65 and ROHS compliant, and provide protection from radiation exposure superior to lead.
Installation of Artemis Shielding materials is fast, clean, and safe compared to lead-based products, which offer several obstacles. Our lightweight material is easy to handle and requires no special personal protective equipment for installers. With our profile extruded corners and door jambs there’s no more need for hammering lead to fit, simply apply the adhesive and press into place.
Our products offer a durability far superior to lead-based products providing a substantial savings in replacement costs. Because our products are lead-free and non-toxic, there are no increased costs associated with disposal or remediation of environmental impact.
Artemis Shielding solutions are proven to be 30% lighter than lead in many applications. Our patented formulation allows for you to easily transport Artemis Shielding, while also taking up 10% less space when compared to lead.
Artemis Shielding products are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. Simply discard the old or unused material as you would any other construction debris, or return it to us to recycle into new Artemis products and material.
“Artemis Shielding approached our dose rate reduction project like it was their own issue and they were determined to achieve success. The XYZ product saved hundreds of thousands of dollars over the competing products and the results showed minimal differences.”
“The notion of removing lead from products doesn’t require much thought to know it is a good idea. It turns out [Artemis Shielding] is also tougher and possesses many other attributes that put you in a class all by yourself.”
“We use several radiopharmaceuticals for therapeutic purposes that require lead shielding to create a safe environment and protect the hospital staff from the external radiation from these radiopharmaceuticals. Recently we were introduced to ‘Artemis Shielding’ who build portable lead-free shields that weigh far less than the lead shields. Artemis can design custom-build these barriers of any size and thickness depending on the gamma radiation energies. Artemis designed custom-built shields for us for a very high dose of I-131 therapy. They were able to meet our needs and designed the shields for our specific room size. In evaluating these shields for I-131 use, the product meets the regulatory threshold for adequate and appropriate staff protection.
