  • First Time Purchasing Laser Blocking Curtains?

    Most potential laser blocking curtain customers are typically purchasing the curtains for the first time, and they have many questions and concerns needing to be answered. These laser safety curtains are not your typical curtains. They are used to guard and protect users against exposure to harmful laser beams. Here are just a few facts about laser blocking curtains. The laser safety curtains are designed to be passive guards to enclose an area where Class 3 B or Class 4 lasers are in use. The curtains are used to protect against accidental exposure to the laser beam. The laser blocking curtains protect against laser radiation at lower power densities. All RT laser safety laser blocking products are CE marked and certified to EN 60825-4 The weight of the material is 0.3 lbs/sq. ft. Laser safety curtains protect against exposure to laser beams. Should the white or black side be facing the area with the laser? Both sides will block laser radiation. We encourage customers to use the white side as the laser-blocking side. This enables a higher specification of blocking to be achieved, making the curtain suitable for higher power lasers. What sizes do your curtains come in? All of our curtains are custom made to your specifications, so you get the perfect fit for your area. What is the lead time? The lead time varies between 2 to 4 weeks. This can be shorter or longer depending on orders that come in daily. Do you provide curtain tracks? We can provide you a quote for a curtain track. Often times it is less expensive to source this from a company near you. Can I cover a window with a curtain if I don't want a blind? Absolutely! The curtain and blind material are exactly the same. If you do know what a blind, we have a couple of different options for you. We can sew Velcro onto the material so you can attach it around the window. (no extra cost) We can sew magnets into the material if you have a frame around the window that is magnetic (additional cost). Need a quote? Shoot us an email with the width x height of the curtains you need and we will send you over a quote! Should you have any questions concerning laser safety, please contact us at 770-332-0092 or email us at and we will be happy to educate you on laser blocking curtains.

  • Did you know that Potassium Iodide could do this??

    Recommended purpose or use: Thyroid blocking agent for use in nuclear emergency involving the release of radioiodine. This medication is to be used in addition to measures to avoid exposure to radiation such as evacuation, shelter and agricultural and food measure to limit the sale and ingestion of radioiodine contaminated food. Each tablet contains: Potassium (Potassium iodide) 15.3 mg Iodine (Potassium iodide) 497 mg (The tabled information is provided courtesy of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission). Frequently Asked Questions About Potassium Iodide In Canada, Health Canada, or in the United States, the FDA, is the Federal agency responsible for decisions about appropriate thresholds and dosages for use of potassium iodide: What is potassium iodide? Potassium iodide is a salt, similar to table salt. Its chemical symbol is KI. It is routinely added to table salt to make it 'iodized'. Potassium iodide, if taken in time and at the appropriate dosage, blocks the thyroid glands uptake of radioactive iodine and thus could reduce the risk of thyroid cancers and other diseases that might otherwise be caused by exposure to radioactive iodine that could be dispersed by a terrorist activity or nuclear accident. What is the role of potassium iodide in radiological emergency preparedness? The purpose of radiological emergency preparedness is to protect people from the effects of radiation exposure after a dirty bomb or accident at a nuclear power plant. Evacuation is the most effective protective measure in the event of a radiological emergency because it protects the whole body (including the thyroid gland and other organs) from all radionuclides and all exposure pathways. However, in situations when evacuation is not feasible and in-place sheltering is substituted as an effective protective action, administering potassium iodide is a reasonable, prudent, and inexpensive supplement to evacuation and sheltering. Potassium iodide is a special kind of protective measure in that it offers very specialized protection. Potassium iodide protects the thyroid gland against internal uptake of radioiodines that may be released in the unlikely event of nuclear exposure. What is the benefit of taking potassium iodide during a radiological accident? When potassium iodide is ingested, it is taken up by the thyroid gland. In the proper dosage, and taken at the appropriate time, it will effectively saturate the thyroid gland in such a way that inhaled or ingested radioactive iodines will not be accumulated in the thyroid gland. The risk of thyroid effects is reduced. Such thyroid effects resulting from radioiodine uptakes due to inhalation or ingestion, or both, could result in acute, chronic, and delayed effects. Acute effects from high doses include thyroiditis, while chronic and delayed effects include hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer. Can individual members of the public obtain potassium iodide? Health Canada has approved potassium iodide as an over-the-counter medication. As with any medication, individuals should check with their doctor or pharmacist before using it. What are the recommended dosages of potassium iodide? Please see chart shown above.

  • RadDecon Solutions | RT Technologies

    Rad Decon Solutions The Quick Decon Actinides and Transition Metals solutions are the world’s most effective and safest solution for radiation decontamination of radioactive surfaces including human skin . The solutions, developed by a combination of nuclear pharmacists, nuclear chemists, radiation experts and NASA consultants with many years of experience in the nuclear and medical device industry succeeded in the goal to develop a formula that would safely and significantly remove radioactive material from human skin and on other surfaces in the event of a nuclear event. ​ Radioactive contamination poses several cleanup problems including: safety of cleanup personnel, control of waste volume and end state contamination level. In an effort to address these problems we have investigated the use of ion-exchange resin preparation technology to treat contaminated surfaces. ​ These products reduce cleanup time; controls waste volume and leave the surface in a state where minimal radioactive contamination is present. Get a Quote Products Quick Decon Solutions - Transition Metals Quick and Safe Ionic-Focused Solutions for Removal of Decontamination ​ Effective on 63 different radio-isotopes ~80%-90% reduction on 1st pass* Non-Toxic, Environmentally friendly FDA approved for use on intact human skin Water based and "Resin Bed friendly" Cost effective Available in Field Ready kits or Pre-moistend wipes for emergency response 10 year Shelf Life Download Brochure Request a Sample The core technology is called the "Mass Effect" influence. When our proprietary solutions are introduced to a contaminated surface, the radioactive material is lifted from the surface and suspended into the solution, where it can be easily wiped up or rinsed away as radioactive waste. Spray on, let solution penetrate for 1-5 mins, and then wipe down or rinse off. Our products are currently in use in commercial waste facilities and in hospitals, with a proven track record of significantly reducing time and dose on critical path applications such as Cavity Decon. The Quick Decon QDTM Solution is extremely desirable to use for Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) RX Cavity cleaning and use in general at NPP’s because of its unique ability to remove the radioactive contaminants from solution WITHOUT binding or affecting the resin binding sites. The Decon solution has NO Ionics (available free radicals) and contains no detergents and thus is ‘inert’ to the resin materials. Therefore, the active ‘sites’ for the Rad Waste resins are left uncompromised/unused and available to filter out the targeted contaminants from the RCS, etc. For the above reasons, and because the Quick Decon QDTM solution is 98% H2O, it passes straight through the resins with no negative effects. Each formulation is ion-specific and specially prepared to address a specific chemical group. ​ The Transition Metal Mass Effect solution will pick up all Transition Metals such as Cesium, Cobalt, Strontium, Chromium, Manganese, Iron, Zinc & Nickel.
