What is Tungsten W?

Tungsten is a gray black metal with a metallic luster (body-centered cubic crystal).  Melting point 3400, boiling point 5555. The hardness of tungsten is the hardest of all metals, ranging from 200 to 250 for sintered tungsten rods and from 350 to 400 for rotary hammer rods. 

Tungsten is soluble in a mixture of nitric and hydrofluoric acid. Fused with a mixture of sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate. Slightly soluble in nitric acid, sulfuric acid, aqua regia; Insoluble in water, hydrofluoric acid, potassium hydroxide. 


What is Tungsten W Used For?

Tungsten is mostly used in the production of carbide and iron tungsten. 

Tungsten and chromium, molybdenum, cobalt composition of heat resistant wear alloy used for cutting tools, metal surface hardening materials, gas turbine blades and combustion tubes. 

Tungsten, tantalum, niobium, molybdenum, and other refractory alloys. 

Tungsten-copper and tungsten-silver alloys are used as electrical contact point materials. High-density tungsten nickel copper alloy is used as a shield against radiation. 

Tungsten wires, rods, plates, etc. are used in making parts of electric bulbs, electronic tubes and electrodes for arc welding. 

Tungsten powder can be burned into filters of various porosity. 


What is Tungsten Powder?

Tungsten powder is a kind of metallic tungsten in powder form, which is used to prepare tungsten processing materials, tungsten alloys, and tungsten products. 

Tungsten powder can be divided into spherical tungsten powder and irregular tungsten powder. Because of the different particle shapes, the physical and chemical properties and specific uses of tungsten products are not the same.


Spherical Tungsten Powder: 

Spherical tungsten powder is gray-black fine powder, the melting point is about 3400, and the boiling point is about 5555. The density is 19.3g/cm3 as same as gold. Its hardness is like a diamond. It has strong reducibility, purity up to 99.9%, with the bulk density of 11.6g/cm3 and vibration density of 12.5g/cm3.

Under normal circumstances, the higher the degree of spheroidization, the smaller the particle size and the narrower the particle size distribution of the powder, the better the fluidity of the powder, the greater the bulk density.


What is Spherical Tungsten Powder Used For?

Spherical tungsten powder is the main raw material of tungsten alloy, tungsten material and cemented carbide. 

W powder mixed with other metal powder can be used to make tungsten alloy. 

W powder can be processed to make tungsten materials such as tungsten rod, tungsten wire, tungsten bar.

W powder can be made into tungsten carbide powder after carbon treatment, tungsten carbide powder can be made into hard alloy tools such as milling cutters, drills and molds. 



Spherical tungsten powder is prone to crack or deform during processing due to its high melting point and hardness, which affects the properties of the alloy. At present, 3D printing technology has gradually replaced the traditional powder metallurgy, which is an ideal tungsten powder processing technology.
