Tungsten alloy is a kind of metal material with high strength, high toughness, high wear resistance, high density and high melting point. The strength of tungsten alloys mainly comes from two aspects: the high density and high melting point of tungsten, and the addition of other metal elements to tungsten alloys, making them harder and more durable.

First, the Atomic number of tungsten in the periodic table is 74, and its specific gravity is up to 19.3 grams/cubic centimeter. It is one of the metals with high density on the earth. Therefore, tungsten products can achieve smaller volume and higher weight with the same quality. In addition, tungsten has a melting point of up to 3410 degrees Celsius, making it the material with the highest melting point among all metals. Therefore, it can be used at high temperatures and can also be used as a corrosion-resistant material at high temperatures.

Secondly, other metal elements such as copper, nickel, iron, cobalt, etc. have been added to tungsten alloys, which can improve their hardness, strength, and wear resistance. These elements can form different alloy series with tungsten: tungsten iron alloy, tungsten cobalt alloy, tungsten copper alloy, tungsten cobalt iron alloy, tungsten iron nickel alloy, etc. The elements in these alloys all exhibit excellent hardness, strength, and wear resistance. The addition of various elements can produce tungsten alloys for various purposes, such as in aerospace, engineering machinery, cutting, high-temperature furnaces, and other fields.

The strength and hardness of tungsten alloys have unique advantages in manufacturing, processing, and use. Because tungsten alloys are very hard and wear-resistant, they are particularly suitable for manufacturing blades and other cutting tools, and are widely used in fields such as mechanical processing, automotive industry, construction, and aviation industry. In addition, due to the high density of tungsten alloys, they are also widely used in nuclear reactors, missiles, tanks, artillery shells and other fields requiring high ballistic accuracy.

In summary, tungsten alloys exhibit higher strength than other metals in many aspects, making them one of the preferred materials in various applications due to their high strength, wear resistance, and high temperature resistance. With the continuous development of technology and the expansion of application fields, the application prospects of tungsten alloys will be more extensive.
