What is carbide powder?
Buffalo Tungsten produces high quality tungsten carbide powder that is used in many applications that require excellent hardness and wear properties. The resulting alloyed material has a chemical formula of tungsten Carbide WC Powder Cas 12070-12-1. Some of the common applications for tungsten carbide include cutting tools and high wear surfaces.
What is carbide used for?
Carbide is used in other manufacturing purposes and applications as well. It is frequently used for trekking poles, cleats, and ski poles. It is also utilized in the manufacturing of fishing weights and many other mechanisms that require cutting and pulverizing.

What is tungsten carbide powder?
TaeguTec quality tungsten carbide powder(tungsten Carbide WC Powder Cas 12070-12-1) is produced by carburization in a hydrogen atmosphere with a mixture of tungsten metal powder and carbon. The resulting WC is suitable for a wide variety of manufacturing processes. Application: Cutting Tools, Wear Parts, Roll & Die, Diamond Tools, Mining Tools etc.

Is tungsten carbide powder explosive?
Unusual hazard: Dusts may present a fire or explosion hazard under rare favoring conditions of particle size, dispersion, and strong ignition source. However, this is not expected to be a problem under normal handling conditions.

Is Carbide harmful for health?
Consumption of carbide ripened fruits is extremely hazardous for health, mainly for the nervous system. Acetylene, generated from carbide reduces oxygen supply to the brain. In acute stage, it causes headache, vertigo, dizziness, delirium, seizure and even coma.

Where is carbide found?
Its most basic form is that of a fine grey dust and is generally mined in China. Tungsten carbide is one of the hardest compounds found naturally and used in many industries to produce a long wearing, heat and scratch resistant material when combined (or cemented) with other materials.

Is Carbide stronger than steel?
When in its monocarbide form (chemical formula of WC), tungsten carbide rivals diamond for the hardest known material. Its impact resistance, toughness, and resistance to galling/abrasions/erosions are exceptional, lasting up to 100 times longer than steel in extreme conditions.

Can tungsten carbide cut diamond?
Now, tungsten carbide is durable enough that it could probably help grind or cut diamond. Diamond is brittle, and a tungsten carbide tool bonded with some tough metal like cobalt or nickel could probably serve to break diamond, much like a steel hammer can shatter diamond.

Is tungsten carbide toxic to humans?
Conclusion. Tungsten metal alone is toxic and can cause many problems. Such as cancer or lung problems. However, tungsten carbide rings made with jewelry grade tungsten are not toxic.
