Several applications require shielding from radiation where lead is not a feasible material. Tungsten heavy alloy provides an alternative to lead that is strong and highly customizable into precision components. With an approximately 1.7 times greater density than lead, tungsten guarantees radiation exposure is kept to a minimum. Tungsten’s higher density means the material provides better gamma ray absorption and radiation shielding. Not only is tungsten thicker than lead, but it is also easily mechanically processed/machined and has high ductility and strength. Compared to lead, tungsten is eco-friendly due to its non-toxic properties, making it a more feasible option for use in medical environments. Further, tungsten is also preferred in industrial settings requiring radiation shielding since it uses less material than lead and provides the same absorption level.
