Tungsten alloy is used in a number of areas as a shield against gamma radiation and X- rays or as a collimator to focus radiation rays on a target.

With a density 60% higher than lead, it offers superior attenuation characteristics and allows the shielding thickness to be reduced, while maintaining the same level of protection.

The strength and durability of the tungsten alloy allows it to withstand harsh environments, while its density gives it excellent radiation attenuation characteristics.

We are able to process the tungsten alloy in a wide variety of shapes and with very tight tolerances, allowing the creation of custom shields.

Tungsten in Nuclear Medicine

Radiation can be used both for diagnostics and therapeutic applications in nuclear medicine. In any case, the tungsten alloy provides the perfect solution for radiation shielding and collimators.

Its excellent radiation attenuation properties reduce the thickness of the screens, effectively blocking radiation harmful to X-rays and gamma rays. The tungsten alloy is resistant to surface chips and dents that can harbor bacteria, facilitating cleaning and sterilization.

Tungsten in nuclear engineering

Tungsten alloy can be used to provide effective shielding against harmful radiation in a number of nuclear engineering applications.

Tungsten is often used for small localized screens, especially in tight spaces because its excellent attenuation properties allow thinner screens to be used without compromising the level of protection for sensitive personnel and equipment.
