Coinciding with the properties above, usually , tungsten alloy can be manufactured as the parts of military defense, extrusion die, some counterweights, such as yacht counterweights, vehicle counterweights, airplane counterweights, helicopter counterweights, boat counterweights, tank counterweights, etc.
Extrusion die is one of the forming techniques used in material processing, consisting of forcing the work pieces through a die, thereby reducing its cross section and increasing its length. Tungsten alloy block is the popular material for extrusion die because of its high melting point and corrosion resistance.
Why we adopt tungsten alloy for parts of extrusion die instead of lead or aluminum or other materials' block? Because tungsten alloy has high melting point of more than ten times higher than lead, which is important in extrusion die process. Another reason is tungsten alloy's high hardness. Reason that is even more important is that tungsten alloy is environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
