QUALITY, HIGH DENSITY TUNGSTEN SUPPLIES, WORLDWIDE
Here at Ultimate Metals, we produce tungsten supplies from our base in Hitchen for clients across the world.
Our high density tungsten heavy alloys are made from virgin powders, using modern powder metallurgy techniques.
We aim for quality and excellent communication in our work, priding ourselves on our specialist experience and knowledge.
Tungsten can be machined with little difficulty and is a high density metal, being 65% denser than lead. It has a high softening temperature, as well as low thermal conductivity and a low coefficient of expansion, giving it a high resistance to thermal fatigue. It is strong at high temperatures and has a high thermal stability.
Tungsten alloys are ductile and resistant to cracking, despite their strength. They prove more resistant against acid than stainless steel and are thus ideal in hostile environments, with no risks to health.
Tungsten is 1.5 times more effective than lead against gamma rays and X-rays.
