Tungsten Carbide's Use

Tungsten carbide (or more specifically tungsten carbide and titanium carbide) is a very common material on any sort of cutting tool: For example, saw blades, lathe bits, drill bits, router bits and dental drilling tips are generally made of carbide. Tungsten carbide is so popular in these sorts of tools because it stays sharper longer than most other materials. Additionally, some ball-point pens use carbide balls because it helps the pen last longer.

Non-toxic Materirals--Tungsten Alloy

In order to reduce the adoption of environmental hazardous materials in the military field, tungsten alloy related products are used as a nontoxic substitute for lead and depleted uranium in bullet and shot.

High-density metals such as tungsten alloy are now widely employed; the goal is to create functional, high density, non-toxic arms projectiles with controlled impact behavior.

The Times of Tungsten Carbide Rings

In the 21st centurt, we have entered the times of tungsten carbide rings. Tungsten carbide rings are so indestructible that only industrial diamond abrasives can be used to cut or engrave into this metal. It also has an extremely high melting point of 5,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Tungsten is generally used in industrial machinery and in tools that need to be extremely hard, resistant to scratches and damage, and be able to withstand high temperatures. It is because of all of the aforementioned properties that tungsten carbide rings are gaining popularity. A wedding band is supposed to stand the test of time, and a tungsten wedding band is the hardest metal ring on the market today. It will withstand decades of abuse and still be perfectly shiny and be scratch free. Some people fear that if a tungsten carbide ring needs to beremoved during an emergency, it would not be able to due to its hardness. This is not true as any jewelers saws can cut through any type ring, even tungsten carbide.

Tungsten Carbide Powder Market Keeps Quiet

Ganzhou Tungsten Industry Association announced that the guiding price of medium-sized tungsten powder was RMB310kg USD50.0kg, which increased by around RMB17kg USD2.7kg compared with RMB293kg USD46.9kg in April.

However, owing to the weak demand from the downstream markets, the tungsten carbide powder prices are hard to move up sharply in a short time.

European Ammonium Paratungstate(APT)Market

Mainstream European ammonium paratungstate  (APT) prices have held between USD340-350mtu in warehouse Rotterdam this week, showing no change for almost four weeks, with some traders even speculating that with a firm bid some stockholders would be prepared to sell at USD335mtu in warehouse Rotterdam.

This lack of movement in terms of price and buying activity has come as a surprise to some suppliers who have seen China ammonium paratungstate (APT) export prices move up USD10mtu in a little over two weeks to range between USD360-370mtu CIF Rotterdam as of Thursday.

European Ferro-tungsten Prices Likely to Increase

An increasing tightness in the availability of prompt release ferro-tungsten prices in the Europe ferro-tungsten market has forced stockholders to move offering prices USD0.10-0.20kg W higher this week, with numbers between USD43.70-44.20kg W in warehouse Rotterdam as of Tuesday.

Sources, who confirmed consumer purchases between USD43.50-43.70kg W d.d.p over the past 4-5 days, acknowledged that rising export prices from Asia would likely force European ferro-tungsten prices closer to USD45.00kg W in warehouse Rotterdam in May.

Supply and Demand of Tungsten

Primary Tungsten

That there is plenty of tungsten in the ground is not in doubt but some of the biggest deposits are in the areas where access is difficult, or have a low ore grade, making the long-term view of tungsten prices the governing factor in determining their economic viability.

Production in 2010

Not only have the sources of supply altered but so have the tungsten compounds traded, as fluctuating price differentials between concentrate and upgraded products and governmental restrictions played their part in the market.  Intermediate products include tungstates, tungsten oxides and hydroxides, W and WC powders, and ferrotungsten.


Supply and Demand

This graph compares the ITIA estimates for the production of concentrate over the last 10 years with demand, calculated by the addition of imports of concentrates (ex world) as well as imports of intermediate products from China and Russia.  As supply and demand have largely been in balance over this period, production has been supplemented by releases from stocks.  Actual consumption, including recycled material (see below), is much more difficult to assess.

Secondary Tungsten (Scrap)

Scrap recycling is an important factor in the world's tungsten supply, and the tungsten processing industry is able to treat almost every kind of tungsten-containing scrap and waste to recover tungsten, and, if present, other valuable constituents.  Tungsten scrap, due to its high tungsten content in comparison to ore, is a valuable raw material.  The recycling of scrap is very high in several countries but is probably in the range of 35-40% minimum as a global average depending on economic conditions.
