The Nuclear Information Center blog posted a great read about Keith Ferdinando, a team mate at Brunswick Nuclear Plant. This blog offers a prospective from the inside on the importance of Radiation Shielding. One of the items mentioned that is used in this plant is the type of shielding that contains tungsten, which is a non-lead shielding alternative called Silfex. Silflex is flexible, tungsten, or iron mixed silicone impregnated non-lead radiation shielding. This non-hazardous, versatile product is highly customizable to produce a variety of shapes for use in many hard-to-shield applications. MarShield is the preferred distributor of Silflex and would be happy to provide you any information for all your shielding needs.
