3M™ Castable Ceramic - Radiation Shielding is a derivative chemically-bonded phosphate ceramic formulation that contains 4 wt% or higher boron carbide making it especially useful for criticality control and neutron shielding.

3M™ Castable Ceramic - Radiation Shielding is a derivative chemically-bonded phosphate ceramic formulation that contains 4 wt% or higher boron carbide making it especially useful for criticality control and neutron shielding. These products quickly harden to a tough, high-strength ceramic upon casting and are provided either as a powder blend that can be mixed and cast at the point of use, or as pre-cast form.
