Plastic Water ®
Flexible and Durable Water Equivalent
Calibrate photon and electron beams within 0.5% of
true water dose.
Unlike other water equivalent plastics on the market,
Plastic Water ® is flexible and will not break
under impact. Plastic Water ® is the only
calibration material available in 1 mm thicknesses.
Plastic Water ® is the only material
which agrees with true water within .5% above 7 MeV
Custom cavities are available to accommodate any ion chamber on the market (simply provide
the make and model of your ion chamber or a detailed drawing when ordering).
Water is the most important reference material in Medical Physics.
To accurately simulate water overall energy from 10 keV to 100 MeV with a singular
solid materials is one of the more challenging tasks in the field of Tissue Simulation.
CIRS water equivalent materials are formulated to mimic within 1% or better
for specific energy ranges.
- Available in 1 mm thickness
- Easy to machine
- FIVE year written Warranty
