Tungsten ALloy for Defense


Why tungsten heavy alloy is adopted in military?

Nowadays, tungsten heavy alloy is increasingly adopted as the raw material to make parts of military products, such as bullet, armor and shells, shrapnel head, grenade, hunting gun, bullet warheads,bulletproof vehicles, tank panzers, cannons, firearms, etc. A major use for tungsten heavy alloy is in kinetic energy penetrators, where they are in direct competition with depleted uranium (DU). Recent investigations conducted at the Army Research Laboratory show that DU’s superior properties resulted from its ability to localize shear during ballistic penetration events. Therefore, it was argued that if localized shear can be imparted to tungsten heavy alloys, these alloys would exhibit penetration performance matching that of depleted uranium (which had become an environmental problem).

Properties & appliance of tungsten heavy alloy in military

In order to reduce the adoption of environmental hazardous materials in the military field, tungsten related products are used as a nontoxic substitute for lead and depleted uranium in bullet and shot. High-density metals such as tungsten are now widely employed; the goal is to create functional, high density, non-toxic arms projectiles with controlled impact behavior. The special properties of tungsten alloy render it the most ideal counterweight materials, far more than already listed on our website.

Owing to its great hardness and resistance to high temperature, tungsten has been adopted in military defense increasingly today.
