Lead Alternative Shielding
Tungsten shielding products are a great solution for all your shielding needs. Tungsten, Bismuth and Iron-based attenuating materials are available. These can be molded into any shape, allowing the application of localized shielding directly at the source.
Isolated hot spots can be shielded, eliminating the need to shield larger areas surrounding the hot spot. Lead alternative shielding can be engineered to meet weight, size, and radiation attenuation specifications. These types of products have saved power plants time and money during maintenance shutdowns. Our lead alternative shielding products are non-toxic and free of hazardous materials. These shielding materials allow us the ability to create light weight, easy-to-use, customizable products. The weights and sizes available make them easy to handle, with improved ergonomics, reducing the prospect of lifting and handling injuries. Lead alternative shielding can provide attenuation properties similar to lead products, but at half the weight.
