Cast Tungsten Carbide powders are manufactured specially for wear applications. With the carburization process, the mixture of Tungsten powder and high purity carbon at high temperature turn in to crystal forms of hard Tungsten carbide powder.
Cast Tungsten Carbide Powders are available in grades from 30 Mesh to 600 Mesh.
Standard available grades are as under:
|Grades||Particle size range|
|AWF 30||30 – 60 Mesh|
|AWF 60||60 – 100 Mesh|
|AWF 100||100 – 200 Mesh|
|AWF 200||200 – 300 Mesh|
|AWF 300||300 – 400 Mesh|
|AWF 400||400 – 600 Mesh|
Cast Tungsten Carbide Powders are used to manufacture diamond tools, where high abrasiveness is required. It is also being used in wear applications such as welding electrodes and wires.
