Tungsten – A revolution in metal industry
Up until now, it is known that tungsten cannot be found in nature in its pure form. This element is usually bonded to other metals and elements. Once it is extracted it has to be purified in order to be used for industrial purposes. Tungsten Heavy Alloy is a highly respected element when it comes to the protection from radiation. Therefore it is widely used in the medical industry as a shielding component to the radiation therapy machines.
Its amazing properties made it quite popular and almost every industry in the world uses this metal. This element is highly sought out for because of its outstanding purposes.
It shows remarkable resistance to corrosion and heat as one of its properties and it also has incredible bonding abilities to other similar elements as well as durability.
These bonding abilities are perfect for making alloys, heavy and super alloys. It is exactly this ability that made tungsten the most used metal in the industries of today. For example, a great use of tungsten heavy alloys is mostly present in the aerospace industry.
Because of its astonishing properties, it has become possible to reduce the component physical size while maintaining the needed resistance and durability. Sometimes, it is even possible to increase the resistance of the component. This was almost like a revelation and it actually led to a revolutionary discovery of what this amazing metal can do.
When industries figured out how important this element can be to the future technology achievements, it became quite clear that they were on the verge of something the world has never seen before.
Soon, this element became the foundation of all researchers in the medical industry as well as leisure and sports, tooling and machining industry and so on.
