METAL FILLED HIGH DENSITY FILAMENT

FILAMET™ COMPARED TO GMASS™

Using lead-free Radiation shielding parts in a MRI machine

is there a difference between theSE filaments? YES!

RAPID 3D SHIELD TUNGSTEN FILAMENT

Our patented high-density metal filaments can be used in any 3D printer. In fact our materials can be used without requiring specialized 3D printers or modifications.

The Virtual Foundry sells a range of metal filled filament materials including Rapid 3D Shield Tungsten Filament. In fact the Tungsten Filament has the highest density in the industry.

These materials can be used in a range of industries including manufacturing, prototyping, and radiation shielding.

GMASS™ TUNGSTEN FILAMENTS for printing in specialized 3d printers

GMASS™ filaments were developed by Turner MedTech. The metal fillers have a lower density in comparison to The Virtual Foundry materials.

Filamet™ CAN BE used for radiation shielding

Our metal filled filaments provide a non-toxic solution for all industries that are seeking a lead-free radiation shield.

ALL OUR FILAMENTS ARE LEAD FREE

Our filaments are lead free and can be used to shield and create a protective barrier from gamma rays and external radiation therapy. They continue to expand their use in a range of industries including manufacturing environments, medical facilities, nuclear power plants, and rapid prototyping.

NO specialized printers requireD

We engineered our products to print in any 3D printer including FFF and FDM printers that were designed to print plastic parts.

THE PRINTING PROCESs for Filamet™

Creating parts that will shield and protect from radiation using any 3D printer and our metal filament is affordable, easy, and safe. No training is required and there is no need to wear protective gear as they are safe to use in an open environment.
