Tungsten, tungsten carbide, and many related alloys that have either high density or high wear resistance are major contributors to solutions for each of these requirements in the industrial engineering fields. Counterweights, balancing weights, and sport equipment components, are typical applications where high mass is required within limited spaces. Tungsten carbide alloys are typically used for cutting tools and wear plates, providing ‘hard as diamond’ surface properties.

Heavy alloy tungsten — typically comprised of tungsten, nickel, and iron — is fully machinable, and as such, THPP specializes in supplying blank blocks as raw material for further machining by third-party machine shops. THPP can also offer full-service engineering by supplying fully-machined components based on customer drawings.

A recent addition has been centerless ground tungsten rods of up to 3,000mm long, that are ideally suitable for high-volume production of small turned parts. Some of these tungsten rods are available for immediate delivery from our inventory in San Diego, California.

A full line of molybdenum hardware such as bolts, nuts, rivets, washers and pins is also available for daily delivery at the lowest price on the market and with no minimum order quantity.

Vibration dampening in the electronic industry is a new market opportunity for our high-density Technon® Powder. The results have been amazing, and the demand is constantly growing. 3-D printing of tungsten parts is currently being evaluated by a number of developers.

Another specialty of ours, bucking bars are popular products used in riveting applications in the aviation and aerospace industries. THPP is the largest bucking bar supplier in the world with inventory of over 50 standard shapes and hundreds of other custom designs, manufactured to customer specifications. In the past year alone, THPP has delivered over 10,000 bucking bars to customers worldwide.
