How to produce 3D Printing Alloy Spherical Tungsten Carbide WC Powder?

The production of spherical tungsten carbide powder has the following five main preparation methods:

Carbon reduction method: tungstic acid is reacted with the appropriate amount of reducing agent to produce spherical tungsten carbide powder. The method is very simple and easy to implement and is suitable for mass production.

Chemical vapor deposition method: Through chemical reaction, tungsten and carbon elements in the gas phase react under high-temperature conditions to generate spherical tungsten carbide powder. This method can get products with high purity and is suitable for the preparation of highly demanding materials.

Induction remelting spheroidization method: Through an induction heating reactor, the material is heated step by step in the reactor to spheroidization temperature and moves forward slowly by the vibration of the furnace tube; once the dispersion of the material is not controlled, the molten droplets will grow up due to collision and adhesion, and it is difficult to control the particle size.

Plasma remelting spheroidization method: taking the cast tungsten carbide powder as raw material, using radio frequency plasma flame to heat the argon gas flow to high temperature so that the cast tungsten carbide particles melt into liquid state, and directly and quickly condense into spherical particles. This method affects the particle size and composition of spherical tungsten carbide powder by controlling the particle size state of raw materials, and it is easy to obtain fine-grained spherical tungsten carbide powder.

Plasma Rotating Electrode Atomization Method: The tungsten carbide rods are used as electrodes, fixed in the rod bin, and then plasma atomization is carried out under the protection of inert gas. The plasma arc melts and throws out the end face of the bar material, rotating at high speed to obtain fine and uniform particles.


What is the application of 3D Printing Alloy Spherical Tungsten Carbide WC Powder?

Spherical tungsten carbide powder has a wide range of uses, mainly including the following aspects:

Production of cemented carbide: Spherical tungsten carbide powder is an important raw material for the production of cemented carbide, which can be made into cemented carbide, such as tungsten-cobalt, tungsten-titanium-cobalt, and tungsten-titanium-tantalum (niobium), etc., by mixing it with other metal powders and undergoing a series of processing treatments.

Manufacture of tool steel and high-speed steel: in the production process of tool steel and high-speed steel, tungsten carbide powder can be used as an alloying agent to improve the hardness and wear-resistant properties of steel.

Enhancement of hardening materials: In some composite materials, spherical tungsten carbide powder can be used as an enhancement of hardening materials to improve the strength and hardness of the materials.

Manufacture of advanced electric contact materials: Because tungsten carbide has the characteristics of high hardness, high melting point, and high resistivity, it can be used to manufacture advanced electric contact materials.

Manufacture of wear-resistant parts and components: As tungsten carbide has high hardness and high wear resistance, it can be used to manufacture wear-resistant parts and components, such as seals, bearings, gears, etc.

Composition (percentage by mass) of Tungsten Carbide Powder WC Powder:

Storage Condition of spherical tungsten carbide WC Powder:

Damp reunion will affect spherical tungsten carbide WC powder dispersion performance and using effects, therefore,spherical tungsten carbide WC Powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in cool and dry room, the spherical tungsten carbide WC Powder can not be exposure to air. In addition, the spherical tungsten carbide powder should be avoided under stress.
