NAECOMET® Tungsten Based Radiation Shielding

NAECOMET® Tungsten Based High Density Metals are often specified for radiation shielding in aerospace, medical, military and nuclear energy applications.  Tungsten Heavy Alloys provide a density range of 17 - 19 g/cm3.  Tungsten Heavy alloys require 1/3 less space as lead shielding and possess no threat to the environment.

 

NAECO, LLC. enjoys a long history of supplying tungsten high density metals used in radiation shielding. Whether shielding radioactive material used in Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Therapy, or Gamma Radiation inspection units NAECOMET® Tungsten Based High Density Metals are an excellent choice for your demanding application.  

Our Tungsten high density metals provide the properties required in radiation shielding for therapy as well as diagnosis. Common applications include collimators, syringe and vial shields, and radioactive source containers.

 

NAECO® supplies materials in a variety of forms to your exact specifications, such as precision-machined, near net-shape, or as sintered. 

These revolutionary tungsten based high-density metals possess better shielding capability than lead without health or environmental concerns.  NAECOMET® machinable tungsten materials provide a more stable and durable containment vessel.

 

NAECOMET® High density materials effectively absorb gamma radiation and X-rays.  From a NAECOMET® high density family of metals of tungsten based materials; NAECOMET® materials have densities 50% greater than lead.  The high-density, good mechanical strength and excellent machinability of NAECOMET® materials make them ideal for shielding applications.  The nominal tungsten content of our high-density materials ranges from 90-97% with densities from 17 - 19 g/cm3 respectively.  The balance is comprised of Nickel and Copper or Nickel and Iron.

 

Using NAECOMET® Materials for your radiation shielding solutions will provide:
• Thinner sections vs other materials • Stable at 1000o C
• NON-Toxic, Environmentally Friendly • Does not require licensing
• Structurally stronger • Good thermal conductivity
• Machines easily (similar to gray cast iron) • Low coefficient of thermal expansion

 

Typical Properties of NAECOMET® High-Density Metals

The nominal tungsten content of our high-density materials ranges from 90% to 97% with densities from 17.0 g/cm3 to 18.5 g/cm3 respectively.  The balance is comprised of nickel and copper, or nickel and iron.
