Product Overview

  • Solid Water® mimics the absorption characteristics of water over a wide range of energies.  Radiation beam calibration is made easier when using Solid Water.  It is designed to scatter and attenuate 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. 
  • Gammex has the ability to provide ion cavities in slabs of 2.0 cm thickness or greater to accommodate most commercially available ion chambers.
  • Solid Water has been the industry standard for water mimicing material used by medical physicists for years.

Features

  • Wide range of sizes and dimensions.
  • Moldable materialfor custom requests
  • Rigid construction eliminates broken ion chambers
  • Wide range of applications and uses
  • Standard ranges of thicknesses from 0.2 to 6.0 cm

Benefits

  • Permits achieving calibrations within 1% of the true water dose
  • Useful in relative ionization calibration, depth dose measurements and absolute calibrations
  • Easily machined to custom sizes and to accommodate unique applications
  • Widely used material in scientific publications
  • Optional ion cavities permit use of most commercially available ion chambers

Certification and Warranty

  • Solid Water® carries a 1 year warranty. 
  • Extended warranty plans are available  
  • Solid Water® products are listed with the US FDA as Class I Medical Devices
