Chemistry - Tungsten Compounds
Tungsten carbide is an extremely hard grey compound created by reaction of tungsten and carbon at high temperatures. This book encompasses elementary and valuable data on tungsten carbide. It covers topics ranging from powder processing to machining sciences with the purpose of facilitating the industry in discovering more possible applications. Tungsten carbide has drawn the attention of engineers as well as academics due to its distinguished properties like hardness and wear-resistance, chemical inertness and high melting point. It has several applications across distinct fields like oil and gas, wear parts, aerospace, mold and die, semiconductors, marine technology, cutting and mining tools, automotive, etc. It holds great potential specifically because of its quality to resist extreme temperature conditions and exceptionally hard nature.
