Tungsten carbide strip is widely used in industry because of its extraordinary properties:
1. Strict tolerance extent control
2. Excellent wear resistance & high toughness
3. Very good thermal & chemical stability
4. Anti-deformation & deflection
Because of its wear resistance and hardness (9.8 Moe's scale), tungsten carbide strip is ideally suited for wear parts, other machine parts and dies which are subject to severe service conditions, such as high temperatures, corrosion and abrasion. In recent years, tungsten carbide has emerged as a superior alternative to steel in many industrial applications.
Because of its longer wear qualities, tungsten carbide strip translates into significant cost savings for OEMs, including: smaller parts inventories, less downtime to replace worn components, greater productivity.
