Tungsten high density alloys (WHD)
Haines & Maassen offers tungsten high density alloys with different alloy surcharges. These tungsten alloys are characterized by an high density, which is close to this of pure tungsten. Their advantage lies in a much better workability.
Next to its obvious use as a balance weight, the ability to absorb x- and gamma radiation makes it a usefull alloy in many technical application. High density tungsten alloys are described in the ASTM B 777 norm.
In comparison to pure tungsten, WHD parts are much easier and cheaper to produce. It is possible to produce in much smaller and delicate dimensions.
|Magnetic properties||slightly magnetic||not magnetic|
|Hardness||little softer||little harder|
|Density||between 17 and 18,5gr/cm³||between 17 and 18,5gr/cm³|
We supply tungsten-high-density-alloys with a specific weight of 17g/cm³ to 18,5 g/cm³.
Forms of delivery
We have Rods of WHD18 (WNiFE and WNiCu) on stock in diameters from 5-50mm. On request wie also offer other forms of delivery in various alloy compositions with different densites.
If you need special geometries, please contact us. We realise custom made designs as per drawing.
