Tungsten Micron Powder
Tungsten is a chemical element with the symbol W and has the atomic number of 74. Tungsten is a hard steel-gray metal which is often brittle and hard to work in its raw form. Tungsten has the highest melting point of all the metallic elements. In its purest form, the hardness of tungsten exceeds that of many steels. It also has resistance towards acids, alkalis and oxygen. The unique optical, electric, and medical applications of tungsten as micron powder form makes it a material of high interest to researchers and engineers in a variety of disciplines. Fine tungsten powders are commonly used as a material in various applications including microelectronics, coatings, metalworking, steelmaking, and more. Tungsten micron powders offer unique benefits in the production of films for microelectronic applications. Besides, electrochromic coatings, metal ceramic coatings, specialized coatings for optic applications, and other applications all benefit from the use of tungsten nanoparticles. In addition, tungsten micron powders exhibit exceptional potential as a sintering additive, with research indicating that these powders will make traditionally difficult metallurgic processes much easier through proper application.
