Tungsten – “W” (Also known as Wolfram)
Tungsten Bar, Wire, Crucible, Sheet, Billet
Tungsten parts are becoming an increasingly popular option and it’s easy to understand why. This refractory metal boasts a wide range of useful properties. It can be fabricated in different ways, to create different products – which are applicable across a vast number of industries.
Standard sizes are available or they can be made bespoke to meet your exact specification.
What are the properties and uses of tungsten?
Tungsten metal is known for its impressively high melting point of 3410°C (6170°F). It demonstrates low thermal expansion, low vapour pressure and good thermal conductivity – making it an ideal option for high-temperature applications.
Tungsten is also a very strong, high-density metal. It can be easily combined with other refractory metals (e.g. steel, copper, iron) to create alloys and it lends itself well to the machining process.
As a result of these properties, tungsten is suitable for lighting, radiation, shielding, medical devices, vacuum heating. It can be used to support structures for power tubes and as an evaporation source in metallizing processes. It is also suitable for use as weights, counterweights and ballast keels, and it is an outstanding material for dimensional stability, arc-welding electrodes, glass seals and furnace manufacturing.
