The paper considers the physical and mechanical properties of bimetallic tungsten-copper powders after explosive compaction. This method is used to produce rather dense powder compacts from tungsten-copper nanoparticles. The structural analysis and the analysis of physical and mechanical properties of the obtained composites show that the pressure reduction and an increase in the time of explosive compaction considerably improve the composite hardness and mechanical properties.
