Rare, precious and specialized metals and alloys are widely used in the defense industry, not only in weaponry and defense equipment, but also for communications equipment and infrastructure. Military contractors require metal products like nickel-aluminum bronze, Beryllium copper and copper-nickel for these and related applications, which include aircraft components, anti-missile defense systems, rockets, explosives detection equipment, missile guidance equipment, communications and satellite systems, and other highly specialized products and equipment.
In addition to rare, precious and specialized metals and alloys, the defense industry also has a strong and ongoing need for aluminum, ductile iron and cast iron. These metals are widely used in the construction of military equipment, particularly in armaments and the exterior bodies of tanks, land ships and armored vehicles.
