Applications of Tungsten Alloy Rods

What are Tungsten Alloy Rods?

Tungsten Alloy Rods are made of tungsten & other metals, such as nickel, copper, and iron, which are melted and blended to create a high-density, high-strength material. Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals, making it an excellent choice for applications requiring high-temperature resistance. Additionally, tungsten alloy rod has excellent corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, & radiation shielding properties. The exact composition of it can vary depending on the intended application, but they typically contain between 85-98% tungsten by weight.

We add the other metals to the alloy to improve specific properties such as ductility, toughness, or machinability. Due to its unique properties, various industries widely use tungsten alloy rods. The aerospace, defense, medical, sports, automotive, electrical and electronic, and oil and gas industries use them for various applications, such as radiation shielding, ammunition, golf clubs, electrical contacts, and drilling equipment.
