Considered to be the metal with the highest melting point, tungsten is regularly used in the space industry for its stability and resistance to high temperatures. Tungsten is also an important ingredient in the arms industry, where it is used to improve the hardness of weapons and to reinforce vehicle armour. In its pure form, tungsten is used in electrical applications such as the production of incandescent light bulbs.
