Tungsten heavy alloys are usually consisted of W-Ni- Fe or W-Ni- Cu or even W-Ni-Cu-Fe, some tungsten alloy is added Co, Mo, Cr, etc. It could be made as many shapes. Tungsten heavy alloy sphere has a wide application in military filed.
Advantages of tungsten alloy sphere for military
With the highest densities weighting in at 1.7 times heavier than lead, tungsten is the best ideal material for military defense used in military. On the other hand , tungsten is non-toxic, so it is the related product for lead which was used in bullet and shot to reduce the environmental hazardous materials in the military field. As well owing to its great hardness and resistance to high temperature, tungsten alloy sphere has been applied in military defense increasingly today.
Applications of tungsten alloy sphere for military
Tungsten alloy sphere can be also used as bullets or pellets in many military filed.
These are the pellets from inside a shotgun shell. Lead shot and bullets have been banned in many areas because they poison the environment. The main substitute materials are steel, bismuth and tungsten. The main advantages of tungsten alloy ball which made as pellet are that it's very dense, and very hard. The density allows the pellets to fly long distances without slowing down, while the hardness allows the pellets to keep their shape while being accelerated by the powder charge, which increases the muzzle velocity.
As well tungsten alloy spheres are widely used in hand grenade, armor piercing projectile, prefabricated fragments.
Tungsten alloy sphere is in small volume with high density, which means it could be used in some fields need the little but heavy parts, such as counterweights for military defense, projectiles in the missile weapons, armor piercing ammunition, hunting equipment, counterweights for hunting gun, prefabricated fragments, the missile weapons, armor piercing ammunitio, tungsten alloy bullet.
