Radiation shielding and collimators
The high density of Wolfmet tungsten alloy is a key reason for its superior radiation attenuation characteristics which make it ideal for use as shielding and collimators. Physically strong and dimensionally stable up to 1,000°C, Wolfmet tungsten alloy is robust and long lasting. It requires no licensing or special handling precautions.
We also produce components using our additive manufacturing process – Wolfmet 3D. It offers benefits when manufacturing high-precision components such as collimators and radiation shields in imaging systems.
With more than 40 years’ experience in manufacturing tungsten for the nuclear industry, Wolfmet offers a wealth of engineering knowledge and expertise to support customers in creating bespoke radiation shielding solutions.
