After taking a drop, the tungsten carbide market is relatively quiet but seems to be stable for the most part. The supply of tungsten carbide inserts, wear parts, and rounds have been very volatile in the last month. Nickel continues to trade sideways with lower stainless steel orders and smelters ordering what they need on short terms. The demand on super alloys such as Inconel 718 solids and turnings keeps its strength, however continues to squeeze processors for margin. Tool steel demand shows no signs of slowing and M-2 solids are in high demand for remelt and powder production.
