A hidden danger, no color and no taste for nuclear radiation that can have effects in human health While increasing the use of ionizing radiation The risk of health increases If is not used or contained correctly. And in order to avoid the risks of this radiation to the health of workers And clients With these radiations to look for a continuous and extensive search In all materials that can protect them from this radiation. These materials must be inherently harmless, with a low material cost. In this study, four samples were done with different mixing ratios for studying the attenuation coefficient of gamma rays and beta particles barriers made of polymer, epoxy, FeSO4.7H2O compounds in addition to Eggshells and in certain proportions and the use of these samples measure the attenuation coefficient of gamma rays and beta particles using radioactive sources. (Caesium-137 and Strontium-90). At the end of this research the ability of Eggshells to attenuate beta particles and excelled On FeSO4.7H2O compounds. The gamma attenuation coefficient is very close to FeSO4.7H2O compounds. These readings were taken at the Directorate of Treatment and Management of Iraqi Radioactive Waste based.
