Additive manufacturing is revolutionizing how we make products and opening up new possibilities. With over a century of experience, we supply the custom tungsten powders to make this possible.


Properties of starck2print® metal powders

Our starck2print® tungsten powders for additive manufacturing are outstanding to work with, and their high purity helps ensure consistent quality in the final product. They also reduce production costs at the same time. Because we recycle the tungsten components at the end of their lifecycle, your products can contribute to a true circular economy.

H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders produces tungsten powders by reducing tungsten oxides under a hydrogen atmosphere. Thanks to this method, the tungsten powders feature outstanding flow properties, meeting the requirements of advanced additive manufacturing methods.

Manufacturing methods qualified for starck2print® powders

starck2print laser powder bed fusion

Laser Powder Bed Fusion

Featuring fine particle size distribution, starck2print® W35T tungsten powder is the material of choice when it comes to powder bed-based laser melting.

starck2print electron beam melting

Electron Beam Melting

Applying an even coat of powder is no longer an issue, thanks to our powders’ superior flow properties. Our starck2print® W75T tungsten powder is qualified for electron beam melting.

Assured quality and raw materials supply

H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders has been producing tungsten powders for 100 years. Our state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, efficient methods, and expert employees guarantee consistently high product quality. We also use our own accredited analytical tools to ensure that all our products ship according to specifications.

Our raw materials are derived primarily from recycling of used products containing tungsten. We use a patented method to derive high-purity ammonium paratungstate for further use. This recycling expertise is also available to you as a service. We can recycle practically any industrial residue or parts containing tungsten into new, high-quality tungsten powder.

In addition, we have access to the biggest reserves of primary raw materials outside China through our owner, Masan High-Tech Materials, which is based in Vietnam.

Joining forces to meet your innovation goals

We combine our expertise in powder metallurgy with in-depth application experience and production operations that can be scaled to meet demand at any time. As a result, we can partner with you for success and efficiency at every step of the research and development process.

Thanks to our cooperation with well-known research institutes such as the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, we stay in step with the times, another benefit to our customers.
