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!
