What is the Most Refractory Material in the World?

0 Comment

When it comes to the world’s highest melting point or the most refractory material, many people jump the gun and say “Tungsten.” But I want to tell you that this answer is only half true. As we all know, tungsten is a pure metal with the highest melting point in the world, but the most […]

Tungsten Alloy Counterweight, the Best Supporting Role in the Industry

0 Comment

Tungsten alloy counterweights (tungsten counterbalances, tungsten balance weights) are made from tungsten heavy alloy. They help to reduce the loads that parts are exposed to and consequently increase their service life, which are crucial components in many different applications. Development history Tungsten alloy counterweight has a long history. China has entered the heyday of bronze […]

Refractory Metal Powders Are Expected to Become Raw Materials for 3D Printing

0 Comment

3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing. Similar to the powder metallurgy processes we use today, metal devices manufactured with this technology are based on metal powders, such as ceramic powders and metal powders. The difference is that the powder is not sintered together, but formed by “printing” sections of the parts onto the […]

How Can An iPhone Vibrate Without Tungsten?

0 Comment

If tungsten runs out and only a short mining life remains, what will support the vibration of the iPhone? “A perfect storm may be brewing because supply is shrinking fast”, says a professor of sustainability at the Rochester Institute of Technology. So, what is this storm about? And what supply is about to “shrink”? Why […]

Super Performances of the High-specific Tungsten Alloy

0 Comment

A tungsten alloy, also known as a high-specific tungsten alloy, is a refractory metal consisting of W-Ni-Fe, W-Ni-Cu, and W-Ni-Cu-Fe. Tungsten alloys have high melting points and are twice as dense as steel and 50 percent higher than lead. Currently, WNiFe is a popular ingredient for high-specific tungsten alloys, such as W-Ni-Fe Alloy, which can […]
