Medi-RayTM is devoted to innovation in lead metal technology. To accomplish this objective, Medi-RayTM‘s founders decided that a multi-disciplined approach could provide the solution to the operational problems and high costs inherent in the many fields which draw upon metals and alloys technology.

From its inception, Medi-RayTM has drawn upon and organized a staff of leading professionals representing the entire spectrum of metallurgy, radiation physics and environmental engineering. These experts have been channeled into product definition, research and development areas. Effective, end-user oriented management has been employed from the beginning to insure that resulting lead products and services are of the highest standards and compatible with today’s metallurgical and radiation shielding requirements.


History of Medi-Ray

In the rarified world of nuclear medicine, 1970 was an especially important year. For it was in that year that a passionate group of visionary individuals, comprised of physicists, metallurgists, physicians and radiologists, formed an important alliance. These professionals shared an expertise in nuclear medicine, each one approaching it from their unique perspective. The result of this alliance was the company known as Medi-RayTM, Inc.


Common Uses for Sheet Lead

The characteristics of the element lead make it a great metal to use for a wide variety of applications. Its high density, low melting point, ductility, and relative inertness make it a valuable element. Since lead is highly malleable it can be shaped into different shapes and forms such as sheet lead.  How is Sheet […]

What is Lead Refining / Casting?

Before we understand lead refining or casting, let us define lead. The chemical element, lead is a soft, bluish-white or grayish metal and makes up 0.0013% of the Earth’s crust. It is very malleable, ductile, and dense and is a poor conductor of electricity. It is highly durable and resistant to corrosion. It’s properties of ductility, ease of welding, […]
