3 Surprising Advantages of Tungsten Carbide Buttons


Tungsten carbide can also be called cemented carbide, hard alloy, tungsten alloy, and hard metal. Cemented carbide is a famous tool material used for making kinds of cemented carbide products, such as cemented carbide buttons, cemented carbide blades, cemented carbide rods, cemented carbide plates, cemented carbide end mills, and so on. In this article, you can look through the surprising advantages of tungsten carbide buttons:

1. Good properties

2. Various shapes

3. Wide application

Good properties

Tungsten carbide buttons are made of tungsten carbide and binders like cobalt powder and nickel powder, so tungsten carbide buttons have many good properties from tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide buttons can be heat resistant, wear resistant, and have high hardness, high strength, high impact strength, and so on. 

Hardness is an important property of tungsten carbide, which is tested by the Rockwell Hardness Tester. The hardness of tungsten carbide buttons can reach 90HRC. Tungsten carbide has high heat resistance, and it can keep its performance under 500℃, and even under 900℃. Tungsten carbide buttons have to be confronted with high temperatures during work because they will make friction between rocks or minerals. 

Besides these, tungsten carbide buttons also have a low thermal expansion, so they are not easy to deform during work. 

What’s more, tungsten carbide buttons have good corrosion resistance. This property of tungsten carbide is useful when exposed to corrosive substances likely, such as water, acids, or solvents.

Various shapes

Tungsten carbide buttons can be made into different shapes, including tungsten carbide conical buttons, tungsten carbide parabolic buttons, tungsten carbide ball buttons, tungsten carbide wedge buttons, tungsten carbide spoon buttons, and so on. Different types of tungsten carbide buttons have different characteristics. You can choose any types you want, and customized products are also welcome. 

Wide application

Tungsten carbide buttons can be widely used for mining, tunneling, digging, and so on. And various shapes can also be inserted into different types of drill bits. Tungsten carbide conical buttons can be used in mining drill bits, coal mining bits, conjoined electric rock drill bits, coal cutting picks, and rock drilling hammer bits. Cemented carbide parabolic buttons can be inserted in tricone bits, DTH drill button bits, and mono-cone bits. Tungsten carbide ball buttons can be inserted in drill bits for rotary percussion drilling, DTH drill button bits, and oil cone bits. Tungsten carbide wedge buttons are widely used in tricone bits, oil cone bits, mono-cone bits, and double-cone bits.
