Tungsten Alloy for Defense

Why tungsten heavy alloy rod is adopted in military defense?

Tungsten heavy alloy is increasingly adopted in tungsten alloy defense 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. 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 alloy defense, these alloys would exhibit penetration performance matching that of depleted uranium .

The problem with such a penetrator is the tremendous heat applied to the penetrator unit when striking the shielding (surface) at hundreds of meters per second. This has partially been solved by using metals such as tungsten , and altering the shape of the projectile .

In fact, in the World War Ⅱ, tungsten has already been used as an important raw material to make weapons for military defense.

Properties & appliance of tungsten alloy for military defense
In order to reduce the adoption of environmental hazardous materials in the military field, tungsten alloy defense related products are used as a nontoxic substitute for lead and depleted uranium in bullet and shot. High-density metals such as tungsten heavy alloy are now widely employed; the goal is to create functional, high density, non-toxic arms projectiles with controlled impact behavior.
Owing to its great hardness and resistance to high temperature, tungsten has been adopted in military defense increasingly today.
Tungsten alloy defense for main military appliance:
*Tungsten alloy bullet
*Shrapnel head
*Balanced ball for missile and plane
*Core for armor-piercing bullet measurement
*Kinetic energy penetrators
*Armor and shells
*Rocket components
We can offer the tungsten heavy alloy rod for military usage, such as bomblet, armor-piercing bullet, etc.
