Swaging greatly increases the tungsten alloy rod’s ultimate tensile strength. The ultimate tensile strength of regular tungsten alloy rods is 1050 MPa. However, after swaging, the ultimate tensile strength can reach 1200 MPa min, and we can even control tungsten alloy military swaging rods at 1400 MPa. Tungsten alloy military swaging rods are one of our main products. The composition of tungsten alloy military swaging rods is 93%WNiFe.
Our common types:
- Diameter: 12mm~20mm, Length: less than 400mm;
- Diameter: 20mm~400mm, Length: less than 500mm.
We can manufacture other products according to customers’ specific requirements.
Tungsten Alloy High Performance Rod Main Properties for Military:
- High density
- High melting point
- Small volume
- Excellent hardness
- Superior wearing resistance
- High ultimate tensile strength
- High ductility
- High temperature resistance
- Low vapor pressure
Military Applications of Tungsten Alloy High Performance Rods
Tungsten alloy High Performance rods can be used in military defense, such as depleted uranium kinetic energy penetrators, bullets, armor piercing bullets, sniper rifle penetrators, etc.
Here’s How we Process the Tungsten Alloy High Performance Rod:
- Heat treatment
Repeated heat treatment and swaging is performed several times for optimization. This way, the tensile strength and impact toughness of the Tungsten Alloy High Performance rod can be improved while simultaneously decreasing elongation.
