Abstract

Over the course of time, radioactive applications have changed from miracle cures to a material that is treated with caution in public perception. As a Swiss company, which has always been working with radioactive materials, RC Tritec is an interesting example how the applications in private industry have changed over the years: The company was originally a Ra-226 activated luminous paint manufacturer which managed to become a leader in the field of tritium labelling, the construction of manifolds for the handling of ionizing gases, source production and neutron imaging.
