This compound is made up of tungsten, carbon, and has a molecular structure of WC. It also has a molecular mass of 195.85. Tungsten carbid is a black hexagonal crystal, with a metallic luster similar to diamond and a high conductor heat and electricity.
Tunsten Carbide Properties:
Tungsten carbide is a black hexagonal crystal structure. It can be dissolved in mixed acid with nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and aqua regia. However, it cannot dissolve in cold water. Tungsten carbide has stable chemical properties.
Tungsten carbide is a grey powder with metallic luster. Although it is not easily soluble, it can dissolve in hydrochloric and sulfuric acids. However, it can be broken down in hydrofluoric and nitric acids. It is very fragile if pure tungsten caride is added. However, it can be made less fragile by adding small amounts of cobalt, titanium and other metals.
Tungsten Carbide Application:
Tungsten carbide is used to cut steel. To increase its anti-knock capability, it’s often combined with titanium carbide and tantalum caride. Tungsten carbide is used to make cemented carbide.
Tungsten caride is used extensively in high-speed, fast cutting tools, furnace structural material, jet engine components, cermet materials and resistance heating element.
Tungsten carbide powder is used for cutting, wear-resistant and melting of crucibles.
Tungsten carbide is used for its super-hardness and wear resistance. WC-TiC-Co-Cemented carbide tools are well-known. You may also use it to modify NbC-C or TaC-C ternary-system carbides. It will reduce the sintering temp and provide excellent performance. It is also suitable for aerospace applications.
Tungsten carbid (WC) is made by combining tungsten anhydride, graphite and a reducing environment at high temperatures of 1400-1600. The hot pressing sintering and hot isostatic pressing can result in dense ceramic products.
