Tungsten Carbide Processors

GREYSTONE ALLOYS PROCESSES MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF TUNGSTEN CARBIDE PER YEAR.

Thus, making us one of the world's largest tungsten carbide processors. The list below are just some of the forms that we buy:

  • Inserts
  • Endmills
  • Boring bars
  • CB Drills
  • Pumping rods
  • Shearing knives
  • Medical saw blades
  • Radiation shields
  • Turbine blades

Mallory and Hevimet are two tungsten alloys that are usually mistaken to be WC, but these alloys are not bonded by carbon, but alloyed with Ni or Ni and Copper (Cu). Tungsten in alloys such as Ni Alloys, Ni Co Alloys, and Co Alloys give them greater integrity. Tungsten’s extremely high melting temperature (3400 C) and density(atomic number 74) adds to the resistance of thermal expansion. This is extremely important in aerospace alloys, where retaining shape in extreme temperature and stress are necessary for performance.
