Title: how is a Tungsten Carbide Ring Made?
Post by: tungsten001 on November 13, 2009, 06:31:59 AM
Tungsten carbide rings are created by combining tungsten powder with carbon and nickel. The powders are then placed in a high pressure dye to form a blank. To bind the nickel and carbon with the tungsten the blank is fired at 3600 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once the tungsten rings have cooled they are then cut, shaped, and polished. Due to the fact tungsten carbide is almost as hard as a diamond the shaping and polishing process is very similar to that of the diamond. From start to finish your tungsten carbide ring will go through approximately 35 steps.

I always prefer Tungsten Rings (http://www.fiercetungsten.com/) for giving gifts to my friends. Its really a nice metal. I too used that only for my wedding.
