Tungsten/Bismuth silicone shielding is widely used in nuclear power plants, nuclear laboratories, nondestructive testing, military, mining, oil and gas. It is the lightweight radiation shielding option. Compared to pure lead at similar attenuation, tungsten silicone is 25% lighter. Compared to lead blankets, tungsten-silicone sheets are 50% lighter.

It can be fully customized and is easy to trim, cut, abrade, drill and punch. Tungsten/Bismuth silicone is very effective in moist conditions and is resistant to boric acid and sodium hydroxide.  It provides exceptional stability at high temperatures up to 25° 0 C (482F) with various silicone compositions allowing for temperatures up to 500° C 932F).
