  • Designer's Guide to Tungsten Carbide (.pdf)
    . It competes with advanced ceramics in the wear parts arena but just as tungsten carbide did not totally displace tool steel, advanced ceramics cannot replace tungsten carbide.
  • The Manufacturing Process for Cemented Tungsten Carbides (.pdf)
    General Carbide is a leading manufacturer of tungsten carbide preforms and blanks used in wear, cutting and metalforming operations worldwide. The founder of General Carbide, the late Mr. Premo J.Pappafava (1926-2002), published a paper early in his career which, to this day, is a lasting
  • An analysis of the GenFixx TM mechanical assembly technique compared to a brazed assembly technique used in severe service valve component applications
    Functionally, the ability of a tungsten carbide/steel assembly to succeed mechanically in severe service valve component applications is dependent upon the strength and reliability of the method of attachment. In common use today is a brazed assembly, employing standard braze procedures to achieve
  • Thermal spray: Better performance for less
    , directional sink and stabilizer rolls coated with tungsten carbide resist wear and corrosion. Much as in the steel industry, paper mills coat rolls in paper-converting lines. Besides mitigating wear, coatings also aid release and protect the quality of the paper product. Oil and gas industries employ
  • Refractory Hard Metals
    for applications requiring wear resistance; the high-cobalt grades serve where impact resistance is required. Tantalum carbide and tungsten carbide combined in a matrix of nickel, cobalt, and/or chromium provide an RHM formulation especially suited for a combination of corrosion and wear resistance
  • Slick as a whistle, hard as a rock
    exotic alloys. But it isn't as compatible with some metallic substrates, including magnesium, aluminum, tungsten carbide, and those with high zinc and molybdenum content. However, methods have been identified for successfully applying Nibron on aluminum and developments for coating magnesium are underway
  • Tough Coatings
    . For example, various tungsten carbide/carbon (WC/C) and diamondlike carbon (DLC)-coated valve train and transmission components used in racing motorcycles reportedly improve power output and torque throughout the entire rpm range. Measurements using a dynamometer, or dyno for short, have shown
