Tungsten, which symbols for elements is W and the atomic number 74 in the periodic table, is a VIB group metal. The density is 19.35 g/cm3, which is close to gold, the melting point is 3422°C, and the boiling point is 5927°C.

Tungsten materials have been widely used in alloys, electronics, chemicals and other fields. Honglu is committed to using the properties of tungsten materials to develop its wider applications as the company is one of the core members of public-listed Xiamen Tungsten Co., Ltd. Utilizing the characteristics of radiation shielding ability and good thermal conductivity of tungsten materials, Honglu has developed tungsten products that can be applied to fixed target X-ray tubes, tungsten alloy, polymer  tungsten products.

Relying on advanced tungsten material preparation technology and rich production and management experience, Xiamen Honglu can provide tungsten material preparation technology and rich production and management experience, Xiamen Honglu can provide high-quality tungsten disk with the purity higher than 99.98wt%. The tungsten disc forging with large deformation and multiple passes, so it has high density, combined with high hardness, it can withstand high voltage electron beam bombardment, then it is a sharp sword for downstream manufacturers to produce fixed-target X-ray tubes.


On the other hand, based on the shielding ability of tungsten materials against x and gamma rays, the tungsten products and tungsten alloy products produced by Honglu are 1.5 times and 1.7 times that of lead plates with the same thickness, respectively, which can be widely used in the fields of medical imaging and radiotherapy.



Tungsten is an ideal replacement material of lead one because it won’t generate secondary radiation. Tungsten polymer produced by Honglu has excellent anti-radiation property: The anti-radiation property is positively related to both density and thickness. Its density can be as high as 11.6g/cm³, and it has rubber-like flexible, can be cut to any shape, and most important is that polymer tungsten is Non-toxic, totally friendly to soil, water and air.
