Characters and Appliacation of Tungsten Steel
Tungsten steel (tungsten carbide) has a series of excellent properties such as high hardness, wear resistance, better strength and toughness, heat resistance, corrosion resistance, especially its high hardness and wear resistance, even at a temperature of 500 ℃ is basically unchanged at 1000 ℃ is still very high hardness, belongs to the tungsten carbide, also known as tungsten-titanium alloy.
Hardness can reach 89~95HRA, because of this, tungsten steel products (common tungsten steel watches), with not easy to be worn, hard not afraid of annealing, but brittle characteristics.
The main components of tungsten carbide and cobalt in cemented carbide, which accounts for 99% of all components, 1% for other metals, so it is also known as tungsten steel.
Its density is more than twice that of ordinary steel. The density of tungsten steel is 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter, which is one of the densest of all metals.
Due to its high density, tungsten steel has a wide range of applications in industrial production
Commonly used in high-precision machining, high-precision cutting tool materials, lathes, impact drills, glass cutter bits, tile cutter above, hard not afraid of annealing, but brittle. Belongs to the ranks of rare metals.
Can also be used to cut heat-resistant steel, stainless steel, high manganese steel, tool steel and other difficult to process materials. The cutting speed of the new tungsten carbide is equal to hundreds of times that of carbon steel.
Tungsten steel can also be used to make rock drilling tools, mining tools, drilling tools, measuring gauges, wear-resistant parts, metal abrasives, cylinder liners, precision bearings, nozzles and so on.
Tungsten steel is also widely used in the aerospace field. Because of its high strength and high corrosion resistance, tungsten steel can be used to manufacture aircraft engines, missiles, satellites and other aerospace equipment. These devices need to have high strength and high corrosion resistance to ensure their reliability and safety in extreme environments.
In addition to the above, tungsten steel can also be used to manufacture fuel rods in nuclear reactors. Due to its high melting point and high density, tungsten steel can be used to manufacture fuel rods in nuclear reactors to ensure their stability and safety under high temperature and high pressure environments.
