• The higher energy of Cobalt-60 allows for penetration of thicker materials (2 inches; 50.8mm or greater) with a relatively short exposure time.
• SPEC’s spherical source design allows for smaller focal sizes, improving contrast sensitivity.
• Cobalt-60 has an extremely long half-life, allowing for sources to remain usable for 10 or more years
