Why Use Tungsten Carbide Over Other Metals?

The Group of Seven leading economies is discussing imposing a cap on Russian oil prices by imposing restrictions on insurance and shipping, according to people familiar with the matter.  The potential mechanism would only allow shipments of Russian crude oil and petroleum tungsten carbide powder are still very uncertain.

Tungsten carbide is a compound in which two elements are combined to form a new metal.  Recently, it has become increasingly popular in the industrial world as more and more people use it in place of traditional metals. It's a versatile and very useful material, but what makes it better than other metals?
 
Strength
Tungsten carbide is a very hard material. It is predicted to have a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9, second only to diamonds. This makes it a valuable metal with many different uses. Tungsten carbide bits are incredibly resilient to work where other metal bits blunt and break. 
 
Steel, by contrast, has three times less rigidity than tungsten. This rigidity makes tungsten stronger than steel and titanium. Tungsten is very durable and can withstand many tests in any job. Whether it's tungsten powder or tungsten carbide blades, this compound gets the job done.
 
Recycling
In addition to its strength, tungsten is easily recycled and can be used for many years.  Tungsten carbide waste is collected, melted down, and modified better than other metals, potentially damaging or missing in the process. Other metals tend to lose their integrity or become too damaged to recycle, leading to more waste. Many companies are more than willing to buy tungsten scrap at a very reasonable price to give you less waste and a smaller carbon footprint.
 
The strength of tungsten plays an important role in its recovery value. Its toughness has ensured a long life, but there is no loss of durability in carbide recovery materials when it is recycled. Unlike metal, it is strong in all its uses and can be recycled again and again.  Almost all other metals eventually break down. Because tungsten is a compound and not a natural metal, it does not have this disadvantage. 
 
Tungsten has proved its superiority over other metals time and again in the industrial field.  Its durable strength and versatility make carbide recovery materials one of the most valuable compounds.

Maximo Pacheco, chairman of Codelco, Chile's state copper company, said in a recent interview that he expects copper prices to remain 'very strong in the future,' despite the recent drop. Codelco is the world's largest copper producer.

Copper prices suffered their biggest weekly drop in a year this week on concerns that tightening policy by central banks will dampen global growth and reduce demand for industrial metals. With its wide range of industrial and construction uses, copper prices are often seen as a bellwether of economic activity.

London copper closed at $8,325 a tonne on Friday after touching $8,122.50 a tonne, down 25 per cent from its Peak in March and its lowest level since February 2021. In addition to copper, other industrial metals also fell sharply. Tin, for example, fell nearly 15% at one point on Friday, bringing its losses for the week to about 25%.

"We may be in a temporary short-term turbulence, but what is important is the fundamentals and the balance of supply and demand [currently] looks very favourable for those of us with copper reserves," Mr. Pacheco said. Chile is the world's largest copper producer.  

Mr. Pacheco adds that in a world where copper is the best conductor and there are not many new reserves, copper prices look very strong because the future is very favourable for electrification.
