Tungsten alloy medical shielding

- Oct 15, 2020-

Tungsten alloy medical shields refer to all tungsten alloy shields used for medical shielding purposes. It can be a tungsten alloy isotope container, a tungsten alloy collimator, a tungsten alloy syringe shield, etc. Experts say tungsten alloys are widely used in the medical field as ray shielding materials because high-density tungsten alloys (typically 16.5-18.75g/cm3) have the function of shielding electromagnetic radiation. For example, excellent X-ray and gamma-ray shielding.


In addition, tungsten alloy also has high strength (tensile strength of 700-1000mpa), high hardness, easy to process, non-toxic, environmental protection and other advantages. Tungsten also has a 30 to 40 percent higher ray absorption capacity than lead, so it is often used as a substitute for lead and is currently the best material for medical shielding.
