United Wolfram Tungsten Powders are a heart of the mining tools. This important and large segment includesTools for Road planning, Soil stabilization, Asphalt reclamation, Vertical and Horizontal Drilling of Rock, Oil & Gas Mining, Tunnel boring, Surface Mining, and Others.  For these applications, impact resistance, abrasion resistance and high fracture toughness are required. Commonly, such cemented carbide grades exhibit coarse WC grain (up to 20μm) and 6 to 10 % Co. To minimize wear on the steel holder of the cemented carbide part during application, WC-based hard facings are used for wear protection.
