Barite – Mortar

One of the most used products for shielding radiology rooms is barite mortar. Barite, being a high-density mineral, is added to the mixture, with the aim of increasing the density of the mortar,

making the coating denser for the walls of the room where the radiopaque tests are performed for the x-rays, preventing the rays – harmful to health, from leaving the environment where the tests are performed.
