Tungsten Applications

Applications

Around 50% of produced Tungsten are used for instrumental and, especially, high speed (8-20% Tungsten) steel doping. Approximately 35-45% Tungsten goes to WC carbide-based hard alloys production (85-95% WC and 5-15% Cobalt); some of the alloys also contain TiC, TaC and NbC. Tungsten carbide is used in machine tools such as make milling and turning tools, and used together with cobalt and carbon is often the best choice for such applications; they are used by the metalworking, mining, petroleum and construction industries. Tungsten is used in rocket and aviation industries, in X-ray targets and heating elements for electrical furnaces, in the rectifiers etc.
