Tungsten was discovered in 1781 but was not applied to an industry for another 150 years.
Composite materials are made of two or more materials that have different chemical compositions.
Tungsten carbide falls between 8.5 and 9 Moh’s hardness scale. Diamonds have a hardness of 10.
Tungsten carbide is double the density and about twice the stiffness of steel which is about halfway between lead and gold.

Tungsten carbide is also known as cemented scrap carbide and is considered a precious metal. Tungsten carbide has valuable qualities such as resistance to heat and hardness.Tungsten only appears naturally when combined in four major mineral forms with iron, calcium or manganese. The typical binders that are used on tungsten carbide are cobalt and nickel, which is added as a percentage by weight, a
