CAST TUNGSTEN CARBIDE - Extremely hard and wear resistant

Cast tungsten carbide is a eutectic mixture of both tungsten carbides, W2C and WC, which has a particularly high degree of hardness and wear resistance. For this reason, it is primarily used in advanced wear protection and tooling technology.

H.C. Starck's cast tungsten carbide meets the highest international quality standards for wear materials. It is characterized particularly by its fine lamellar structure ("feather structure").
