Tungsten Sheets Cut to Your Industry Specifications 

Tungsten carbide, also known as tungsten semi carbide or simply carbide, is among one of the most precious and extensively used materials in factories throughout the globe today. Poles apart from standard metals, tungsten is a unique class of metal elements or alloys that provides a number of unique characteristics and benefits unlike standard metal. 

It is one of the world’s hardest, wear resistant metal, with hardness close to that of diamonds and four times greater than that of titanium.  It also has the highest melting point of all non-alloyed metals, as it takes 6 100 degrees of heat to melt. With a high density, it is an excellent conductor, and is a thermally and chemically stable material that offers nothing less than sheer durability and toughness – no other metal can bend or scratch tungsten. Furthermore, boasting a structure that consists of very long interlocking grains, tungsten can be sintered and pressed into bars and tungsten sheets, making it extremely useful in a broad number of applications.
