With Newport News Industrial’s first-of-a-kind reprocessing program, the Tungsten material can be reclaimed from existing shielding products and used to make new products at a fraction of the cost. Reprocessing of old Tungsten material into new products can save as much as 25%! Reprocessing is a great option for specially molded shielding pieces that have outlasted their usefulness, or damaged material that cannot be used anymore. Rather than just throw it away, reprocessing the Tungsten from a piece of shielding allows the user to get a brand new product at minimal cost.
This process can also be used with Tungsten mix materials or any other rubber-based shielding materials, such as Iron or Bismuth shielding pieces!
