Radiation Shielding

SAM tungsten alloy is ideal for shielding against X rays and gamma radiation. The very high density of SAM tungsten shielding (more than 60% denser than lead) allows a reduction in the physical size of shielding components, without compromising their rigidity or the effectiveness of the shielding characteristics.

SAM tungsten shielding is used in applications such as collimators, nuclear shielding, beamstops, PET syringe shields, vial shields, isotope containers, FDG containers, multi leaf collimators, etc in the following industries:

  1. Nuclear Medicine
  2. Industrial Shielding Applications
  3. Nuclear Engineering
  4. Nuclear Research
