Customers in architecture, science and medicine are turning to SCHOTT RD50 radiation shielding glass. Much finer and almost weightless, as opposed to acrylic, RD50 provides superior protection as it contains 65% of lead oxide, which is the material that absorbs the harmful rays.

Importance of refractory metals

Importance of refractory metals

These elements display several of the characteristic properties of refractory metals that have made them and their alloys so valuable in a wide range of industrial applications. These include high melting point, high density and exceptional resistance to wear and tear and to various forms of corrosion.

Tungsten Rod and its uses

Tungsten Rod and its uses

Tungsten rod, the powdered form of the metal, and various alloys are now being used in a growing range of applications. With its incredibly high melting point of around 3410 °C, it is, for example, the ideal choice of material from which to construct the containers and related equipment necessary for the smelting of other metals.
