Neutron Shield: MirroBor

The most efficient neutron shielding for low price!

  • Boron-carbide mass content: B4C = 80%
  • Boron isotope distribution: 20% 10B; 80% 11B
  • Content of the glue (20%): C 70%, O 25%, H 5%
  • Calculated10B content: 9.4 x 1021 atoms/cm3
  • Hydrogen atom density: 1E22 atoms/cm3
  • Self - adhesive option available (radiation & vacuum tested)
  • Thickness: 2 & 5mm
  • Density: 1.36 g/cm3
  • Pore volume ratio < 30%
