    Tungsten Supplier

    Tungsten is a metal known for its exceptional properties. It has the highest melting point (3422°C), lowest vapor pressure, and highest tensile strength among all metals. It also has a very high density (19.3g/cc), and a high degree of mechanical strength and ductility. These qualities make it a great option for applications that need to withstand high temperatures, remain stable in shape, and have strong mechanical strength.

    Tungsten is commonly used in high vacuum technology, furnace construction, and for creating glass seals. Its ability to absorb radioactive radiation makes it valuable in certain industries. Additionally, tungsten is commonly added to steel and combined with nickel, copper, and iron to produce dense materials that can be easily machined.

    At AEM, we provide a variety of tungsten products, including pure tungsten metals, tungsten heavy alloys, tungsten copper, tungsten silver, and tungsten carbide. Our products are of high quality and competitively priced. Check out some of our standard tungsten and tungsten alloy products shown above. If you need custom products, feel free to reach out to us.
