Applications

Tungsten carbide is used in industrial machinery, cutting tools, abrasives, armor-piercing rounds and jewelry. It is preferred even over stainless steel because of their incredible hardness and resistance to wear and tear. It is utilized for the manufacture of mill products including grinding and milling. It also includes tipping trekking, ski poles as well as cleats. It is mainly used in the form of cemented tungsten carbide.

Notes

Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
