  • This visual shows the penetration of various beta emitters if exposed directly to your hand with one glove.
  • Note that if in a tube, H-3, C-14, S-35, and P-33 will be completely shielded.
  • High energy beta particles, like P-32, require distance and shielding to attenuate energy to reduce possibility of personal exposure.
