- Radiation: Betas - 0.710 MeV (99.9%)
- 2.6 m air unshielded
- Physical: 3.08 x 105years
- Biological: 10 days
External and Internal Hazard
- Cl-36 is a medium energy beta emitter that presents both an internal and external hazard.
- Uptakes of Cl-36 are assumed to be distributed uniformly among all organs and tissue of the body.
- Total absorption of beta radiation is achieved with 2.4 mm perspex or 1.5 mm glass.
- Film badges and dosimeter rings are required
- Segregate waste separately
- Whole body and ring dosimeters are required.
- Wear a lab coat and disposable gloves.
- Cl36 beta particles have sufficient energy to penetrate gloves and skin .
