Customised High Capacity and Optimum Quality Tungsten Sheet

Looking for a tungsten supplier who can cut tungsten sheet to specific size or shape? In the engineering industry there are several materials that are principal for production, but none are as important as tungsten sheet. A natural metal that is found on earth combined with other metals, tungsten sheet is one of the most valuable, widely used and longest-used industrial metals known to mankind today.

Poles apart due to its indestructible nature, tungsten is a special class of metal that provides a number of distinct characteristics and benefits different to standard metal. Comparable to gold and diamonds, tungsten is one of the world’s most dense, hardest and wear-resistant industrial metals, which are four times greater than that of titanium.

An extremely brittle industrial metal, tungsten has the highest melting point (3,422°C, 6,192°F), lowest measurement of thermal expansion of any unalloyed metal, lowest vapour pressure (at temperatures above 1,650°C, 3,000°F), and the maximum tensile strength of any generally used metal. Furthermore, tungsten is not only able to resist attack by acids, alkalis and oxygen, but no other metal can bend or scratch tungsten. Boasting a structure that consists of lengthy interlocking grains, tungsten can be sintered and compressed into bars and tungsten sheets, making it particularly effective in a broad number of applications.

Tungsten Sheet Applications

Used in countless applications, tungsten sheet is typically used in electrodes for aerospace, automotive products, aviation, crystal production, fluorescent lamp wire filaments, glass and ceramics, heating elements, inert gas arc welding, lubricants and radiation shields, nuclear high-temperature furnace components, sputtering targets, touch-screen technology, vacuum sputtering, and X-ray tubes. Tungsten is also widely used in the fields of medical and thin-film technology.
