Common Materials In Modern Industry


With the development of science and technology, there are more and more tool materials emerging in modern industry. In this article, we are going to talk about common materials in modern industry.


The materials are as follows:

1. Tungsten carbide;

2. Ceramics;

3. Cement;

4. Cubic Boron Nitride;

5. Diamond.


Tungsten carbide

Nowadays, there are many kinds of cemented carbide on the market. The most popular one is the tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide was developed in Germany and popularized during World War II. Since then, more and more people research and develop the possibility of tungsten carbide. From the beginning of the 21st century, tungsten carbide has been widely used in various industries, such as mining and oil, aerospace, military, construction, and machining. Because people found out that tungsten carbide has great properties such as high hardness, good wear resistance, corrosion resistance, shock resistance, durability, and high strength. Compared with traditional tool materials, tungsten carbide can not only perform higher working efficiency but also work for longer life. Tungsten carbide has 3 to 10 times higher cutting efficiency than high-speed steel.



Ceramics are the various hard materials, heat-resistance, corrosion-resistance, and brittle. They are made by shaping and firing an inorganic, nonmetallic material such as clay at a high temperature. The history of ceramics can track back to ancient China, where people found the first evidence of pottery. In modern industry, ceramics are applied in tiles, cookware, brick, toilets, space, cars, artificial bones and teeth, electronic devices, and so on.



Cement has high rigidity, compressive strength, hardness, and abrasive resistance. They also have high strength at increasing temperatures and excellent resistance to chemical attacks.


Cubic Boron Nitride

Boron Nitride is a thermally and chemically resistant refractory compound of boron and nitrogen with the chemical formula BN. Cubic boron nitride has a crystal structure analogous to that of the diamond. Consistent with diamond being less stable than graphite.



Diamond is the hardest substance known in the world. Diamond is the solid form of carbon. It is easy to be seen in jewelry, and rings. In industry, they are also applied. PCD(polycrystalline diamond) can be used to produce PDC cutters with tungsten carbide substrate. And diamond can also be applied to cutting and mining.
