BC-533 is used for the detection of γ, fast n, cosmic rays. It is a general-purpose liquid scintillator designed to maintain its clarity and fluid state at -50°C. It has a high flash point, low cost and may be encapsulated in acrylic containers. It is ideally suited for use in low-cost, large-volume detectors, which are exposed to low temperatures.
BC-533 is supplied in anhydrous condition, sealed under inert gas.
