When selecting the materials to best meet the requirements of your application, the physical properties are of critical importance. For instance, Tungsten’s hardness and high density makes it ideal for penetrating projectiles used by the military. Below are some tables with data on Tungsten properties, including physical and mechanical properties, chemistry and the pertinent specifications.
