Tungsten Carbide Inserts

    • Tungsten or Wolfram is a metal element that was discovered in 1783 by the Swedish chemist Karl Wilhelm Scheele.
    • Element symbol = W, Ident. Number = 74, Atom weight = 183,86.
    • Melting point is approx. 3.380°C (higher than all other known metals), boiling point is 5.500°C.
    • When combined as an alloy with metal carbides, it achieves nearly diamond hardness.
    • Tungsten Carbide is the hardest man-made material.
