Tungsten is a relatively inactive metal with excellent corrosion resistance and conductivity of electricity. Tungsten is a strong, thick, silver-grey metal with the highest tensile strength and the lowest thermal expansion of all metals. Its density is almost twice that of lead and comparable to gold.
It has the second highest melting point of all elements after carbon and the highest of all metallic elements – 3442oC, the highest of all metallic elements.
Our customers use industrial minerals to improve constructions, increase safety and reduce costs.
