What is tungsten carbide?
Tungsten carbide (chemical formula: WC) is a compound (specifically, carbide) containing an equal number of tungsten and carbon atoms. The most basic form of tungsten carbide is a fine gray powder, but it can be pressed into shapes through a process called sintering and used in industrial machinery, cutting tools, abrasives, armor-piercing bullets and jewelry.

Is tungsten carbide better than tungsten?
Tungsten carbide is a dense metal-like substance, light gray, bluish, and decomposes rather than melts at 2600°C (4,700°F). It is prepared by heating powdered tungsten and carbon black at 1,400°–1,600°C (2,550°–2,900°F) in the presence of hydrogen.
Tungsten carbide has many characteristics of tungsten itself, including durability, strength and high melting point, but it is a better metal. Tungsten is 7.5 on the Mohs level. Tungsten carbide has extremely high scratch resistance at Mohs 8 to 9, and is the hardest metal used in jewelry.

Is tungsten carbide stronger than steel?
When in the form of a single carbide (the chemical formula of WC), tungsten carbide can compete with diamond and is the hardest material known. Its impact resistance, toughness and scratch/scratch/erosion resistance are excellent, and its service life under extreme conditions is 100 times that of steel.
Tungsten carbide is the most scratch-resistant metal known to man. Tungsten carbide jewelry is moderately priced and lightweight, similar to gold and platinum. Tungsten will not bend due to its hardness, so the ring will not deform unexpectedly and further hurt your fingers. The top tungsten carbide ring will never lose its luster.

Why are tungsten carbide rings so cheap?
Cheap tungsten rings are cheap because of reduced labor time. This will result in a decrease in the precision or maintenance level of ring manufacturing, which will ultimately result in a decrease in quality.
How do you know that the tungsten carbide ring is real?
Try to apply and mark to check your ring; if it resists, it will be a good choice. If it gets dirty easily and loses luster within a few minutes, it means that the quality of the product on your finger is poor.
Due to the high hardness, durability, strength and high melting point of tungsten carbide, in our lives, tungsten carbide also has many very beneficial applications. In addition to tungsten carbide rings, tungsten carbide has some advantages Apps that people praise.

1. How Porsche changed the tungsten carbide braking method
The rotor coated with tungsten carbide means better performance, less wear, less brake dust and no rust.
In most modern cars, the brake discs are made of cast iron or carbon ceramic materials. But Porsche recently implemented another brake disc using a material called tungsten carbide, which will revolutionize the industry.
The brake rotor that the company calls the "Porsche Surface Coated Brake (or PSCB)" is an iron rotor that receives a layer of superheated tungsten carbide covering the contact surface at an extremely high speed. The result is a dense material coating with a thickness of 0.1 mm. Porsche said that although useful materials are thin, the service life of the rotor is 30% longer than that of an iron rotor.
Not only that, but Jason Fenske, a road and track contributor, also said that the brake dust produced by PSCB has been reduced by about 90%, because the rotor actually wears very little throughout its life. After repeated hard stops, the tungsten carbide coating can also keep the rotor at a lower temperature.

2. EDC gear coated with tungsten carbide (hardness is 3.5 times that of titanium) will enable the entire service life
The hardness of tungsten carbide is 3.5 times that of titanium, the strongest metal known to man, similar to black gold in the EDC world. Apply a layer of tungsten carbide coating on any gear. It is black like obsidian, has a unique metallic luster, and shimmers in subtle ways. But more importantly, it makes them almost invincible and can resist any form of external wear. Wingback's Black Steel series products are designed by Alasdair MacLaine and have three functions that have not yet reached the minimum requirements. They will definitely become an unshakable part of your daily carrying. The bullet-sized key cache can help you store emergency money on the keychain, and the mechanical pen with a comfortable large design will be your last pen.
Finally, MacLaine's 100ml hip flask has the same cylindrical lathe manufacturing design as the other products in the series. The innovative design of the baton shape makes your hip flask interesting in appearance and use, allowing you to store liquid in it and use it as a corkscrew.
All Black Steel products are manufactured in the UK using stainless steel precision lathes, and then a revolutionary process called magnetron sputtering is used to coat the magical tungsten carbide surface with a thickness of 3um. As a result, the black product still has a clear gloss due to the steel structure below the black product. You can even laser engrave customized and personalized inscriptions on your products to reveal shiny steel under the black coating.
