About Tungsten Carbide WC Powder:

Tungsten carbide: A mixture of carbon and titanium. Tungsten carbide formula The WC is and Tungsten carbide molecular Weight It is 195.85

Tungsten carbide color: Although the most basic form is tungsten carbide in fine grey powder, it can still be used to make jewelry, cutting tools, and armor-piercing rounds.

Young's modulus, which measures 530-700 GPa (727,000 to 102,000 ksi), is approximately twice the stiffness of steel. It is also twice as dense as steel. This is close to equaling lead or gold. Its hardness is almost the same as that of corundum, a-Al2O3. Only diamond powder and cubic boron Nitride can be used to polish and finish.

Tungsten carbide can also be used in the production of tungsten carbide ringstungsten carbide men's ringstungsten carbide wedding bandstungsten carbide men's wedding bands, etc. Because tungsten carbide rings price, It's cheaper than platinum and gold rings. Tungsten carbide has a greater scratch resistance than other metals. Black tungsten carbide ringstungsten carbide rings gold.

Black tungsten carbide This hexagonal crystal has metallic luster, hardness, and resemblance to diamonds. Tungsten carbide is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Tungsten carbide can't be dissolved in water or hydrochloric, nor sulfuric, but is easily soluble when mixed with nitric and hydrofluoric acids. Tungsten carbide, in its pure form, is very fragile. However, if there are small amounts of cobalt, titanium, and other metals, it can be made less brittle. Tungsten carbide can be used to cut steel. To increase its anti-knock capability, it is sometimes combined with titanium carbide (or tantalum) or their mix. Tungsten carbide has a chemical stability. Tungsten powder is used for cemented carbide production.

Production Method of Tungsten Carbide WC Powder:

Carbon reduction method:

Carbon reduction is one of the main methods to produce tungsten carbide. The method is to mix tungsten powder and carbon powder according to a certain proportion and then reduce the reaction at high temperatures to produce tungsten carbide and carbon monoxide. During the reduction process, carbon atoms react chemically with tungsten atoms to form tungsten carbide particles. In order to obtain high-quality tungsten carbide products, it is necessary to control the reaction temperature, reaction time raw material ratio, and other parameters. In addition, in order to prevent deflagration or explosion during the reduction process, appropriate safety measures need to be taken.

The carbon reduction process is usually carried out in a high-temperature furnace, where a high vacuum is maintained. The mixture of tungsten powder and toner is fed into the furnace, heated to high temperature, and the reduction reaction is carried out. At the end of the reaction, a tungsten carbide product is obtained. In order to obtain high-purity tungsten carbide products, subsequent processing, such as refining and separation, is required.

Carburizing method:

Carburizing is another method of producing tungsten carbide. The method is to contact the tungsten matrix with carbon-containing gas (such as CO, CH4, etc.) at high temperatures so that carbon atoms penetrate the tungsten matrix to form a tungsten carbide layer. The carburizing method can be divided into gas carburizing, liquid carburizing, and solid carburizing. Among them, gas carburizing is one of the most common methods.

In the process of gas carburizing, the tungsten matrix is placed in a high-temperature furnace, and carbon-containing gases, such as CO or CH4, are injected. At high temperatures, the carbon atoms react chemically with the tungsten matrix to form a tungsten carbide layer. Tungsten carbide layers with different thicknesses and properties can be obtained by controlling parameters such as carburizing time and temperature. The tungsten carbide layer produced by the carburizing method has the characteristics of high hardness, high wear resistance, and good chemical stability.

Application of Tungsten Carbide WC Powder:

Wear-resistant material: Tungsten carbide has high hardness and excellent wear resistance. It can be used as a wear-resistant material. In industrial production, tungsten carbide can be used to manufacture various wear-resistant devices, such as bearings, gears, tools, and so on. During the use of these devices, tungsten carbide can effectively resist wear and corrosion, thereby extending the service life of the equipment.

Cutting tools: Because tungsten carbide has high hardness, high wear resistance, and excellent thermal conductivity, it can be used as a tool head material for cutting tools. The use of a tungsten carbide head can significantly improve the cutting speed and tool life while ensuring the quality and accuracy of the cutting surface. 

Aerospace field: Tungsten carbide has excellent high-temperature performance and can maintain stable performance in high-temperature environments. Therefore, tungsten carbide is widely used in the manufacture of high-temperature structural materials in the aerospace field, such as blades and combustion chambers of aircraft engines. Tungsten carbide can withstand high temperatures and stress while having excellent corrosion resistance, making it an ideal material choice in the aerospace field.

Energy field: Tungsten carbide's high thermal conductivity makes it have potential application value in the energy field. For example, tungsten carbide can be used as a radiator material for efficient energy conversion devices such as solar panels and fuel cells. In addition, tungsten carbide can also be used as a control rod material in nuclear reactors.

Other fields: Tungsten carbide can also be used in ceramic materials, electronic materials, and other fields. In ceramic materials, tungsten carbide can enhance the strength and wear resistance of ceramic materials. In electronic materials, tungsten carbide has good thermal conductivity and stable electrical properties and can be used to manufacture integrated circuit boards, electronic component radiators, etc. In addition, tungsten carbide can also be used as a catalyst carrier and electrolyte additive.
