Why Use Tungsten Carbide Over Other Metals?

U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the tungsten carbide powder will also increase.

Tungsten carbide is a compound in which two elements are combined to form a new metal.  Recently, it has become increasingly popular in the industrial world as more and more people use it in place of traditional metals. It's a versatile and very useful material, but what makes it better than other metals?
 
Strength
Tungsten carbide is a very hard material. It is predicted to have a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9, second only to diamonds. This makes it a valuable metal with many different uses. Tungsten carbide bits are incredibly resilient to work where other metal bits blunt and break. 
 
Steel, by contrast, has three times less rigidity than tungsten. This rigidity makes tungsten stronger than steel and titanium. Tungsten is very durable and can withstand many tests in any job. Whether it's tungsten powder or tungsten carbide blades, this compound gets the job done.
 
Recycling
In addition to its strength, tungsten is easily recycled and can be used for many years.  Tungsten carbide waste is collected, melted down, and modified better than other metals, potentially damaging or missing in the process. Other metals tend to lose their integrity or become too damaged to recycle, leading to more waste. Many companies are more than willing to buy tungsten scrap at a very reasonable price to give you less waste and a smaller carbon footprint.
 
The strength of tungsten plays an important role in its recovery value. Its toughness has ensured a long life, but there is no loss of durability in carbide recovery materials when it is recycled. Unlike metal, it is strong in all its uses and can be recycled again and again.  Almost all other metals eventually break down. Because tungsten is a compound and not a natural metal, it does not have this disadvantage. 
 
Tungsten has proved its superiority over other metals time and again in the industrial field.  Its durable strength and versatility make carbide recovery materials one of the most valuable compounds.
