High density.

Extremely high shielding performance.

Containers and shielding for radioactive materials, and collimators in magnetic resonance (MRT) equipment. Radioactive source containers, gamma radiography, shields, and more. Freight inspection equipment and X-Ray devices also contain tungsten alloys. 

ANVILOY® Tungsten alloys provide excellent value compared to traditional radiation shielding materials, like lead.

ANVILOY® alloys can provide the same energy absorption as lead AND use 1/3 less material!
