Pros and Cons


  • Extremely high density helps radiation shielding
  • Maintains strength to over 3000°C where most metals melt
  • Relatively neutral material avoids contamination
  • Powder form supports complex geometries with some AM processes
  • Hardness similar to tool steel once parts consolidated


  • Brittle characteristics mean low tensile ductility
  • Difficult to fully densify parts without pinholes and voids
  • Requires specialized cold-wall vacuum equipment for melting
  • Risk of supply chain disruptions impacting availability
  • Oxidation risk necessitates controlled handling
  • Very expensive compared to steel alternatives

자주 묻는 질문

Q: What particle size range is typical for tungsten powders used in various applications?

A: Most common size distributions fall between 1-100 microns. Finer particles pack better aiding full densification but have handling issues. Particle engineering depends on consolidation method with AM range generally 10-45 microns and carbide composites using up to sub-micron powders.

Q: What alloying elements can be incorporated into tungsten metal powder?

A: Typical alloyants like nickel, iron and copper severely degrade high temperature performance so are rarely added. Rhenium improves ductility slightly. Oxide particles help pin grain size. Rare earth dopants also stabilize properties. Alloying options are limited to small additives to maintain purity.

Q: What recommended storage and handling precautions apply for tungsten powders?

A: Like other air sensitive materials, tungsten metal powder should be kept below 40°C under inert argon gas to prevent oxidation from moisture or oxygen. Glove box protocols are necessary including leak checks. Never allow contact with organics during handling to prevent contamination or reactions.

Q: Does tungsten powder require hazardous material classification and special shipping?

A: Elemental tungsten metal powder is benign and not reactive. It qualifies for normal freight shipping in approved packaging similar to other industrial raw materials. No special DG classification needed unlike carbide grades with controlled cobalt content considered hazardous mixtures.

Q: What downstream parts production processes are compatible with tungsten powder feedstocks?

A: Hot isostatic pressing and sintering generate standard consolidated components like weights or heat shields. Additive manufacturing via powder bed fusion creates complex geometries unattainable otherwise. Powders also serve thermal spray coating feedstocks requiring post-consolidation.
