Lead is easy to manipulate, cost effective and durable. Jamestown North America offers best in class service by providing a variety of products for the construction, roofing/plumbing, medical radiation shielding and industrial radiation shielding markets. Lead has many valuable uses ranging from storage batteries to roofing to ballasts. The low melting point of lead lends itself to optimal use for molds and casting.
Jamestown North America knows the construction industry. Lead is one of the best waterproofing materials since it can be molded to any shape, resistant to corrosion and provides superb durability. Sheet lead can be cut into just about any shape, which makes it a flexible option for many industries. Tanks and cable sheathing benefit from lead lining due to its corrosive resistance. It also lends itself to various shapes and sizes while maintaining density when weights and counterweights are vital to your project. The density of lead provides great acoustic and vibration control. Jamestown North America offers the skill and expertise to deliver your products to your specifications whether you need sheet lead or customized parts.
Roofing and Plumbing
Lead is ideal for roofing and plumbing applications because of its waterproofing applications. Lead can be molded to any shape, resistant to corrosion and has superb durability. Strip lead and roofing flashings are great for roofing and masonry applications since lead waterproofs seams and edges. Lead can be molded into dormers, skylights and as roofing material. Lead wool makes a great joint sealer.
Medical Radiation Shielding
Jamestown North America manufactures products used for medical diagnostic testing and medical radiation therapy that provide radiation protection. Our products have numerous customized options to meet your need of portable or permanent solutions. We offer lead bricks that provide greater flexibility to meet your unique configurations. Our rabbetted lead plates allow for less space at the joints since a greater portion of the plates are in contact with each other, which allows the seams to overlap and minimizes the amount of radiation penetration. Jamestown North America’s lead angles and lead discs resolve the problem of radiation exposure at the point where fastener screws are located. Our team has the experience to facilitate your request and assist you regardless if you need smaller site specific shielding or larger infrastructure shielding.
Industrial Radiation Shielding
Jamestown North America manufactures lead products that are routinely found in equipment for industrial radiation protection. Nuclear facilities use lead products as both a physical barrier and cooling mechanism. Lead is found as an integral component in nuclear decommissioning and waste management activities. Security screening in airports, marine ports and border checkpoints rely on radiation shielding properties of lead. Lead is a valuable component of non-destructive testing, including determining the integrity and location of welded areas. We understand the unique needs of the radiation shielding industry. Our lead products help you provide permanent or portable radiation shielding solutions to your customers. We offer customizable lead bricks, lead plates and rabbetted lead plates to meet your project requirements. Our molding, casting and fabrication capabilities afford the opportunity to produce the parts you need according to your specifications. Our team has the experience to facilitate your request and assist you regardless if you need lead components, pig lead, smaller site specific shielding or larger infrastructure shielding.
