Lead Bricks

For use in Nuclear and Medical Radiation Shielding, along with counterbalance weights and balast
Alchemy’s standard brick products are available in Flat, Tongue and Groove, or V-Type Interlocking
Also available in custom shapes and sizes for your niche application.

The interlocking type provides better elimination of radiation leakage and creates sturdier walls with less chance of toppling. Interlocking types make it easier to erect, modify and relocate walls and cells of any size.

We always build your custom walls on our premises to ensure proper fit on your site, all holes or notches that you require are pre-made for your assembly.

Please specify whether you want Pure Lead or Hi-Hard Bricks.
