Standard Grade Solid Water ®
Gammex Solid Water ®
Gammex Solid Water® mimics the absorption
characteristics of water more closely and over a wider range than any other product.
Solid Water® makes radiation beam
calibration easier than ever and is specifically
designed for photon and electron beam measurements.
Solid Water® is perfect for achieving
calibrations within 1% of the true water dose and additional uses include
relative ionization calibration, depth dose measurements and absolute
calibrations. Gammex Solid Water®
scatters and attenuates radiation in the same way as water, and can be easily
machined to accommodate custom applications.
Solid Water® does not adhere to
surfaces or other slabs, and the rigid construction
eliminates broken ion chambers. Slabs are carefully molded and accurately
machined into standard dimensions and customized phantoms per customer request.
Gammex also has the ability to provide ion cavities in slabs of 2.0 cm thickness
or greater to accommodate most commercially available ion chambers found in the field.
Solid Water® is available in 20x20 cm, 30x30 cm,
and 40x40 cm slabs. Thicknesses range from 0.2 to 6.0 cm.
Convenient packages of Solid Water ® Kits are also available.
