Tungsten Carbide Powder: Tungsten carbide (chemical formula: WC) is a chemical compound (specifically, a carbide) containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. Tungsten Carbide (WC) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are black spherical high surface area particles. Nanoscale Tungsten Carbide Particles are typically 10 – 100 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 100 – 130 m2/g range.

WC: Tungsten is a Block D, Period 6 element and carbon is a Block P, Period 2 element. In its most basic form, tungsten carbide is a fine gray powder, but it can be pressed and formed into shapes for use in industrial machinery, cutting tools, abrasives, armor-piercing rounds, other tools, instruments and jewelry.

Tungsten Carbide Powder: Nanoshel produces all type of useful carbides, for my research work I ordered Tungsten carbide nanoparticles. They are highly stable, as researchers compared the stability of the most commonly used carbides in electrochemical applications: tungsten carbides (WC) in electrolytic solutions by varying pH values, where WC exhibits the largest region of stability at a relatively lower pH value. It has been reported that tungsten carbide exhibits high catalytic activity in electro-catalysis and is a promising material for hydrogen evolution reactions and hydrogen oxidation reactions in electro-catalysis.

WC Powder: At industrial level, roughly 17% of tungsten carbide usage which is produced by Nanoshel comes from the creation of specialized alloys and composite materials that contain other metals in them. Carbide can be combined with nickel, iron, silver, and copper to create materials that are utilized in commercial construction applications, electronics, industrial gear making, radiation shielding materials, and the aeronautical industry.

WC Powder: Carbide is used for many other applications including tipping trekking or ski poles as well as cleats, the manufacture of fishing weights, and many cutting and pulverizing mechanisms for recycling machines. However, one of the newest applications for tungsten carbide that is gaining popularity every day for making jewelry. Naturally, the hardness of carbide makes it an attractive alloy to use for crafting rings, pendants, earrings and other jewelry, but when cut and polished correctly, the material is actually stunningly beautiful as well. In fact, tungsten based wedding and engagement rings are becoming all the rage lately and since tungsten carbide is cheaper than gold, it is cost effective as well.
