A company that pecializes in fabrication of thermosets, thermoplastics, aluminum, brass, copper, and stainless steel, offers a material alternative to lead for use in medical electronic devices. Poly-tungsten thermoplastic can be machined and fabricated in a variety of configurations and has the density of traditional metals without the safety issues associated with lead. It’s also more durable than other lead substitutes and offers comparable or better radiation-shielding capabilities. It is malleable and, thus, offers design flexibility and the ability to create molded parts.
