A combination of the exceptionally high density and spheroidal shape of the tungsten powder creates a series of unique properties.
When mixed with the conventional virgin powders used in the tungsten heavy alloy blends, this high density powder provides an excellent way to adjust the Scott density of the blend to match specific tooling requirements. Additions of up to 20 - 25% by weight of Technon® are typically used.
When mixed with polymers, the new material offers no separation at the point of high shear. It also has a higher critical solid loading. Our tungsten powder also has a good mechanical flow characteristic for better cavity filling.
Since we use sintered tungsten parts as our source, the powder's particles are post-sintered. This results in our powder's heavier atomic structure.
