Why Do We Need Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shielding?

With rapid development of medical science, more and more radiation instruments are used in our lives. Medical instruments x-ray
and nuclear power stations have become widespread and are now affecting all our lives. It is essential that people paid more attention to
radiation and even more important for the institutions to protect public from the radiation exposure and to make sure to protect every
radiation source of X-ray radiation, gamma radiation (energetic electromagnetic radiation), radiation of alpha particles (helium atoms) beta
particles (electrons) and cosmic radiation, etc.
Tungsten heavy alloy is the right material for radiation protection, as its combination of radiographic density (more than 60% denser than
lead), machinability, good corrosion resistance, high radiation absorption (superior to lead and steel), simplified life cycle and high strength.
Tungsten radiation shielding can provide the same degree of protection as lead whilst significantly reducing the overall volume and thickness
of shields and containers. Besides, compared with lead or depleted uranium (DU), tungsten radiation shielding is more friendship for the
environments both lead and DU for it is no any toxic.
