Tungsten is one of densest of all elements. Pure tungsten is slightly heavier than gold
with a specific gravity greater than 19. It has the highest melting point of all elements,
F, and the highest tensile strength at high temperatures. Recovery of tungsten is
what makes scrap carbide valuable.
Tungsten is used in super alloys for the aerospace and other high tech industries, e.g. in
the turbines of rockets and jet engines. It is the filament in all incandescent light bulbs
and most fluorescents; it’s why Tom Edison is famous. Tungsten is used in armor plate,
armor piercing ammunition and bunker buster bombs. Tungsten carbide is used for studs
in snow tires and recently to make wedding rings instead of gold, and it is used to make
the cutting tools
that are used to machine products from automotive
engine blocks to dental drills. Tungsten carbide tooling is critical to mining and drilling
as well as road construction. 65% of USA tungsten consumption is used in the
manufacture of new tungsten carbide.
In the famous 1946 Film Noir,
, starring Rita Hayworth in her signature role,
George Macready plays a fiendish villain who is going to run the world by establishing a
monopoly in tungsten. His theory was that control of a critical material could provide a
lot of leverage,
like bending someone’s little finger backwards.
