Standard Grade Solid Water from Sun Nuclear (formerly Gammex) 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.
