What is tungsten carbide? Tungsten carburide (chemical symbol: WC), is a carbide containing the same number of carbon and tungsten atoms. The most basic form is a fine gray dust, but can be shaped through a sintering process. It’s used in industrial machinery and cutting tools as well as abrasives.

Is tungsten carbide better than tungsten?
Tungsten carburide is a dense, grayish-blue metal that decomposes instead of melting at 2600degC. It is made by heating powdered carbon black and tungsten at 1,400deg-1600degC (2.550deg-2.900degF) with hydrogen.
Tungsten carburide is similar to tungsten in many ways, including its durability, strength and melting point. However, it’s a much better metal. Tungsten is Mohs 7.5. Tungsten carbide has a high scratch resistance of Mohs 8 to 9 and is used as the hardest metal in jewelry.

Does tungsten carbide have a higher strength than steel?
In its single carbide form (the chemical formula for WC), tungsten can compete with diamond as the hardest known material. Its impact resistance, toughness and scratch/scratch/erosion resistance are excellent, and its service life under extreme conditions is 100 times that of steel.

Tungsten carbide is the hardest metal on earth. Tungsten-carbide jewelry is comparable to gold and platinum, and it is also lightweight and moderately priced. Tungsten’s hardness means it will not bend. This will prevent the ring from deforming unexpectedly, and causing further damage to your finger. The top tungsten-carbide ring won’t lose its luster.

Why are tungsten carbid rings so cheap?
Because of the reduced amount of labor, tungsten ring prices are low. This will cause a drop in the level of precision and maintenance in ring production, resulting in a lower quality.
How do you verify that the tungsten-carbide ring is genuine?
To test your ring, try to mark and apply it. If the ring resists marking it, you’ve made a great choice. If it becomes dirty quickly and loses its luster in a matter of minutes, the product is not good.

The high melting point, hardness and durability of tungsten carbide also have many beneficial applications in our daily lives. There are many other benefits of tungsten carbide than just rings.

1. The tungsten carbide brake system has been changed by Porsche
The rotors coated with tungsten carbide will perform better, wear less, produce less brake dust, and have no rust.

The brake discs in most modern vehicles are made from carbon ceramic or cast iron. Porsche, however, has implemented a new brake disk made from tungsten carbide. This will revolutionize this industry.

The Porsche Surface Coated Brake, or PSCB is an iron brake rotor which has been coated with tungsten carbide at a high temperature. The coating has a density of 0.1 mm and is thick. Porsche claims that despite the thinness of the useful materials, the rotor’s service life is 30 percent longer than an iron one.

Jason Fenske is also a road-and-track contributor who said that the brake dust generated by PSCB was reduced by around 90% because the rotors wear very little during their lifetime. The tungsten carbide can also lower the temperature of the rotor after repeated hard braking.

2. EDC gear with tungsten carbide (hardness of 3.5 times titanium) will allow the entire service lifetime

The tungsten carbide hardness is 3.5x that of titanium. This makes it the strongest metal on earth, and similar to black-gold in the EDC realm. Any gear can be coated with tungsten carbide. It is black and shiny like obsidian. They are almost indestructible and resistant to external wear. Wingback’s Black Steel products are designed Alasdair macLaine, and they have three features that do not meet the minimum requirement. You will find them indispensable in your daily life. The bullet-sized cache key can be used as an emergency money storage on your keychain. The mechanical pen will also become your last pen.

MacLaine’s hip flask 100ml has the same design of cylindrical lathe as the other products. This hip flask is unique in its appearance and functionality, thanks to the innovative baton-shaped design. It can be used as a corkscrew and for storing liquids.

All Black Steel Products are manufactured by precision stainless steel lathes in the UK. A revolutionary process, called magnetron spraying, is then used to coat the magic tungsten-carbide surface with 3um of thickness. Due to the steel structure underneath the black coating, the product has a very clear shine. You can laser engrave personalized and customized inscriptions onto your products, revealing shiny steel underneath the black coating.
