Advantages of Tungsten Carbide
Tungsten Carbide (WC) is called by some to be the hardest metal but it is actually a metal matrix composite. With a hardness that is measured on the Rockwell "A" scale up to 94 and with a compressive yield strength greater than steel it is ideally suited for applications of extreme wear and abrasion resistance. This makes it ideal for metal and wood working applications such as Drill Bushings, Punches, Dies and Cutting Tools. These same characteristics provide superior service for applications like slitting, crushing, pulverizing and pelletizing. With a density of up to 15.0 G/CM it also has applications in Military, Mining/Construction , Oil/Gas refining and sporting goods.
