- Bullets, as a hardening agent to produce armor penetrating rounds.
- For fragmentation to create a devastating effect as its hardness remains intact as it shreds through targets.
- In cube and ball form in anti-personnel ordnance, ranging from grenades, to mines and rockets, these added tungsten cubes and balls are highly destructive due to their retention of their hard, solid shapes as they impact.
- Used in defensive plating, due to their hardness and strength.
- Used to make penetrators for weaponry, to enhance their effectiveness.
- Used in various weighting applications used in helicopters and other aircraft and armored vehicles. Helicopters often use this material to weight their rotors, noses, and skids. This metal is widely used in these applications because of its hardness and size to weight ratio it is a perfect material for weighting and protection.
- In the production of military ammunitions, due to its environmentally friendly composition, as compared to lead, this has been proven in several ways to be increasingly destructive of the environment.
- Tungsten carbide and other alloys have all been proven to be “clean” metals, which makes them an ideal choice internationally as we move towards greener technologies.
