MarShield’s lead blankets are made using lead wool, which offers increased flexibility, or lead plate. The lead wool consists of fine strands of lead from .005 to .015 inch diameter of varying length. The company’s lead wool products are in accordance with Federal Specification QQ-C-40 Type II Grade C. The interlaced wool is compacted in a random orientation to ensure consistent attention without streaming.
