Tungsten carbide Overview

Family Overview

Tungsten Carbide (WC) is a tough, high-density ceramic often used in severe service applications. Tungsten carbides are commonly known for use in high-quality tooling inserts. Due to its high-temperature tolerance, stiffness, hardness, and flexural strength allow tungsten carbide is also used in other harsh applications like mechanical seals and downhole drilling components.

  • Outstanding mechanical properties
