Bladewerx began in 2001 in the field of radiation detection. In early 2006, the company adopted the shielding aspect of the industry under the trade name of Shieldwerx. Specializing in neutron and gamma shielding, Shieldwerx has brought innovative solutions to the industry in the form of custom orders and specialty products. With CAD designers on staff, we pride ourselves on the ability to address issues. Thus far we have provided quality shielding products to the DOE laboratories as well as many research facilities around the globe.

Throughout the years, Shieldwerx's high-quality line of shielding materials has had a few different looks.  The product line began as Reactor Experiments over fifty years ago in California. With the next transition, it joined with our family as Shieldwerx.  After a few short years, we completely integrated the products and services into the Bladewerx family, joining its line of cutting-edge radiation instrumentation.
