As for hardness, chromium is the hardest known metal. While the hardest known mineral in the universe is diamond, the honor of the hardest metal goes to chromium. Chromium is used in the well-known alloy stainless steel to make it harder.
When compared to steel in a strength-to-weight ratio, titanium is far superior, as it is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. In fact, titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals.

Its natural properties also allow it to absorb kinetic energy, stopping any projectiles in its tracks. And because of its durability, vibranium is deemed the strongest metal on Earth.
It's not brittle at all okay good shot up.MoreIt's not brittle at all okay good shot up.
Diamond Armor is certified bulletproof by NATO standards, waterproof thanks to nano-technology sealing and has an EMPA air conditioning system in-built to keep the wearer cool.
The resulting tungsten metal parts will not be precise enough to substitute for uranium parts for internal implosion in uranium-‐based nuclear weapons. Tungsten is virtually impossible to machine using conventional methods because it is harder than most cutting tools.
Titanium can take single hits from high-caliber bullets, but it shatters and becomes penetrable with multiple hits from military-grade, armor piercing bullets.
