This mainly due to vast use of the tungsten in manufacturing hard materials based on tungsten carbide
. The product is primarily used in manufacturing the tungsten carbide
which is one of the hardest carbides.
thermal dissipation is ca 50x higher than that of the ceramic materials and ca 5x higher than that of the stainless steel.
Even with all this goodness, the TCK's tungsten carbide
blade is the star of the show.
They made tungsten carbide
nanoparticles using a series of steps including hydrothermal treatment, separation, reduction, carburization and more.
Unlike straight tungsten carbides
, which are heavy and forced to the bottom of the weld puddle, the composition of Postalloy PS-150 is ideally balanced to provide a uniform distribution of vanadium-tungsten carbides throughout a tough steel matrix that takes more impact than both chromium and tungsten carbides
Compared with standard HVOF tungsten carbide
coatings, Xaloy MPX technology exhibits 61% less mass loss in ASTM G65 abrasion testing, 18% less mass loss in ASTM G77 sliding-wear testing, and 8.5% greater bond strength in ASTM C633 bond testing, Nordson reports.
Hartmetall's preparation of the blanks begins with accurate cutting of tungsten carbide
The coatings are a metallic tungsten matrix with dispersed nano-particles of tungsten carbide
typically between 1 and 10 nanometers in size.
(W2C) nanoparticles have been fabricated by electro chemical etching of ion implanted graphite surfaces.
10 November 2014 - UK engineering materials company Versarien Plc (LON:VRS) today announced that it had agreed to form a joint venture with Israel-based tungsten carbide
tool manufacturer Dimar Limited for the distribution of tooling solutions for the composites sector.
