Radiation Shielding Material

Tungsten and tungsten alloy in metallic form and tungsten compounds are used in various forms of tungsten heavy alloy radiation shielding. Their high densities meet the primary requirement of a tungsten heavy alloy radiation shielding material and in certain tungsten radiation shielding application, tungsten's high atomic number is also important. The ease with which tungsten can be worked is of added value. The tungsten heavy alloy radiation shielding of containers for radioactive materials is usually metallic tungsten. Radioactive materials in laboratories and hospitals are usually handled by remote control from a position of safety behind a wall of tungsten bricks and X-ray machines are normally installed in rooms lined with sheet tungsten.  


The main role of lead metal in nuclear industry is to avoid the radiation to escape out of the reactor. It basically acts as a shield for the harmful radiations that are produced at the time of nuclear process.

Boron carbide
Boron carbide has high melting point (boron carbide ℃), super hardness 245, low density (2.529 / cm3) and stable chemical properties, tungsten heavy alloy radiation shielding is applied in wear-resistant materials, engineering ceramics and aerospace materials, etc. with the development of nuclear technology and boron carbide, people found that boron has high absorptive capacity of thermal neutron , low energy secondary radiation generated,  high temperature resistant and , resistance to radiation .so people pay more and more attention to boron carbide as nuclear reactor and nuclear tungsten heavy alloy radiation shielding materials.Tungsten radiation shielding products is our leader products.
