Detailed description

XINXING Radiation Shielding boron loaded uhmwpe sheets was specially designed for nuclear shielding applications and is used in a variety of applications including high intensity X-rays, cancer treatment facilities, nuclear submarines, and nuclear power plants.


5% Boron by weight to shield neutrons, are boron loaded PE-(U)HMW grades. The high hydrogen content of PE-(U)HMW makes it very suitable for slowing down fast neutrons to lower energy thermal (slow) neutrons, which are then absorbed by the added boron compound. Whereas both PE-HMW and PE-UHMW are suitable for neutron shielding, PE-UHMW is often preferred because of its better deformation behaviour at high temperatures and its superior impact strength and wear resistance.


Effectively attenuates neutron radiation particles and minimizes the gamma radiation released during their capture
Very good wear and abrasion resistance
High impact strength (particularly PE-UHMW)
Excellent chemical resistance
Low coefficient of friction
Very low water absorption
Moderate mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance
Excellent machinability
