Polymer Tungsten

Polymer Tungsten (also known as Tungsten-filled Polymer) is a composition of various resins and Tungsten powder which are mixed together through special metallurgical technology. The resins can be ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), PP (polypropylene), PBT (polybutylene terephthalate), PA (polyamide), PU (polyurethane), and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), etc. It’s an ideal substitute of lead for radiation protection.

Properties of our polymer tungsten
-High density: ≥11.34 g/cm3
-Perfect radiation shielding performance: Tungsten has comparable radiation shielding ability as lead but is much healthier than lead. To date, many manufacturers, especially those in medical industry, are trying to replace lead radiation shielding products with Polymer Tungsten products.
-Good flexibility and excellent workability: The Polymer Tungsten sheets can be cut or holed with household scissors and formed into shapes with various curved surfaces.
-Healthy and environmentally friendly: The Polymer Tungsten is made of non-toxic & recyclable materials and produces no pollution to the environment.

Application of our polymer tungsten
•X-ray inspection device for industrial and medical use
•Radiation shielding and radiation-protective equipment
•Consumer-use products such as raw material for vibration suppression, weight, acoustic (audio) isolation, etc. because of characteristics of enabling 3-dimensional forming
•γ-ray shielding material and substitute for lead fiber mat in nuclear reactor piping systems
•Medical radiation collimator
