X-Ray Attenuation

Nano Bismuth Oxide for X-Ray AttenuationThe incorporation of NanoArc® Bismuth Oxide nanoparticles into surface coatings, polymer composites, and textiles can provide protection from harmful x-ray radiation without significantly impacting mechanical properties.

This type of protection has remained a long-standing challenge since the use of conventional-sized fillers for x-ray attenuation may significantly degrade the mechanical integrity of polymers.

NanoArc® Bismuth Oxide can also provide enhanced opacity for in-vivo polymeric medical devices.
