High density tungsten alloy balls, spheres and cubes can be used for munitions applications. The density of tungsten also means these components are ideal to replace parts that are designed to have the highest possible weight in a limited volume. Many of these would have been traditionally made from steel or lead.
Tungsten alloys offer an environmentally-friendly, non-toxic alternative to lead for ballasts, vibration damping and filling gaps in radiation shielding, and many other applications.
H.C. Starck Solutions’ current product line of balls, spheres and cubes or custom solutions from tungsten alloys are suitable for any industry that requires high-density materials with excellent durability. For defense markets, high-density tungsten is a popular choice for munitions as its strength and high density make it well-suited for missile applications.
