Whether you need to protect sensitive electronic equipment or delicate human tissue, the energy-absorbing properties of Mi-Tech Metals’ tungsten alloys make them exceptional choices for radiation shielding applications, in both medical and industrial settings.
Our tungsten alloys are used for radioactive source containers, gamma radiography, shields, and source holders for oil-well, logging, and industrial instrumentation. High-density alloys also serve as collimators and radiation shielding in cancer therapy, as well as syringe protection for radioactive injections. When you need to direct a specific amount of radiation to a targeted area, tungsten alloys provide the control you need. Mi-Tech Metals’ high-density alloys will continue to perform, even under extreme, high-heat conditions.
Compared to traditional radiation shielding materials, tungsten alloys provide excellent value. A high-density alloy can provide the same energy absorption as lead using 1/3 less material! Unlike lead, you’ll also reduce administration costs by eliminating the need to obtain special licensing—it’s not required.
Clients all across the globe are taking advantage of tungsten alloy’s reliable radiation shielding properties. If you need to protect yourself, your patients or your equipment from the harmful effects of excess radiation, call a Mi-Tech Metal professional to discuss the benefits of our high density metals today.
