Lead glass Corning® Med-X® contains lead in its composition to block radiation from X-ray equipment used in medical diagnostic procedures.
Multi-crystal visor or multi-laminated glass does not contain lead in its composition, which may be perceived because of its greenish color. Therefore, it is not effective to block radiation and must not be used, according to NBR 61.331.
In addition to being much thicker and heavier, it does not block half as much radiation as a legitimate lead glass does, and its transparency is below 50%.
