MuShield is proud to announce that the company has ventured into the field of radiation shielding by successfully producing radiation shields out of 99.95% pure tantalum sheets.

  • Tantalum shielding can be found in defense technology, nuclear reactors and components, electronic components and x-ray technology.
  • MuShield has the capability to hydroform, spin, draw, form, weld and anneal Tantalum products.
  • Tantalum is ideal in high temperature applications, as it registers a melting point of 5425°F (2996°C).

MuShield's experience as a leader in custom magnetic shielding has made for an easy transition into the Tantalum shielding market. Contact us today for questions regarding Tantalum shielding at info@mushield.com.
