What is tungsten carbide?
Tungsten carbide is a chemical compound of tungsten and carbon, combined in almost equal parts. This is well renowned in industry for its superior durability and high melting point (2,870◦C) and it is often referred to as a Hard Metal due to it’s very high hardness in relation to other metals. In fact, while steel has a hardness value of 160 HV, tungsten carbide can reach up to 1600 HV!
Tungsten carbide is also incredibly ductile and can be extruded into wire. As a result, most incandescent light bulbs actually use tungsten carbide as a filament.
