100% PURE TUNGSTEN

Pure tungsten is a refractory metal. This metal class is characterized by a very high melting point, higher than that of platinum (1,772°C / 3,222F / 2,045K), and by an extraordinary resistance to wear and heat.

ADVANTAGES OF TUNGSTEN

 

  • Excellent X-ray and Gamma ray absorption / shielding
  • High temperature resistance
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Non-magnetic
  • High level of hardness
  • High density
  • High level of stiffness
  • Resistance to most acids and bases
  • Biocompatible / non-toxic

Conventional tungsten applications


Tungsten is primarily known for its use in filaments in incandescent lamps. Tungsten is also frequently used in the medical, nuclear energy, electronic, electrical and chemical industries.
