Shielding for Gamma Ray and Beta Particles Made from Rubber Composite
Pages : 1387-1390
Radiation shielding garments are commonly used in hospitals, clinics and dental offices to protect medical patients and workers from unintentional direct and secondary radiation exposure during diagnostic imaging. To Decrease the Exposure of Ionizing Radiation in this research discuss this problem. The use of composite materials is an effective method for altering the performance of Polymer in engineering plastics, rubber, and fiber materials. Composite materials are used for many reasons Such as lowering cost the Industrial, Shielding Protection, the aim of this study is to made and evaluation the shielding from rubber composite that protect from Gamma Ray and beta particle. Therefore , 8 different rubber compound were prepared by using (SBR) with Titanium Dioxide (TiO2 ) at different ratio (10,30,40,50,60,70,80 and 100) pphr, Then the physical properties such (Gamma -Ray) Transmission , beta particle Transmission also Mass liner coefficient from composite material to Gamma Ray and beta particle the results of this project illustrated that Transmission of (Gamma -Ray) is decreasing with loading of (TiO2) percent .
