Tungsten Heavy Metals for Radiation Shielding from Plansee
In this video Chido Okwuosa from Plansee gives guidance about tungsten heavy metals which is used for radiation shielding. The tungsten heavy metal alloys DENSIMET® and INERMET® have a particularly high density (17.0 to 18.8 g/cm3) and provide reliable shielding against X-ray and gamma radiation.
Both DENSIMET® and our non-magnetic material INERMET® are used for shielding and in collimators in radiation therapy equipment. Also tungsten composite material DENAL® is outstanding due to its optimum strength and high density and elasticity.
