Tungsten Heavy Alloy Counterweights

Tungsten Heavy Alloy Material

CHINA Made Tungsten Heavy Alloy (WHA). GOODE CARBIDE is a 100% CHINA owned, fully integrated, leading producer of high-quality tungsten heavy alloy material and finished parts. GOODE CARBIDE is ISO, AS9100, registered and a qualified supplier to many Tier 1/2 aerospace and defense contractors that leverage our specialty tungsten material as balance weights, flight hardware, and munition subcomponents. Our tungsten heavy alloy meets all ASTM B-777, AMS 7725E, requirements.
GOODE CARBIDE Technologies presses and sinters high-quality tungsten heavy alloy (WHA) blocks, rods, and shaped parts. Sintered WHA blanks can be further rolled or swaged by GOODE CARBIDE to produce plates, sheets, and rods with ultimate tensile strengths exceeding 180 ksi (1240 MPa) and elongations exceeding 5%. GOODE CARBIDE also precision machines WHA parts for use as ballast weights, radiation shields, boring bars, ordnance components, and other components that require high density and good ductility.
GOODE CARBIDE produces its own pure tungsten powder at its facility in ZHUZHOU, HUNAN and has large blending and alloying capabilities.

APPLICATIONS FOR TUNGSTEN HEAVY ALLOY (WHA):
Balance Weights for turbines, crankshafts, and helicopter rotors Inertial damping weights for aircraft control surfaces Weights for aircraft, missiles, boats, and race cars Kinetic energy penetrators Radiation Shielding, radioisotope containers, and collimators for high energy x-ray systems in scientific, industrial, medical, and homeland security applications Low chatter, high stiffness boring bars and tool holder for metalworking High-density instrument casings for downhole formation logging in oil/gas wells Vibration Dampening Weights

WHAT BENEFITS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH WHA?
Strength proportionate to many medium carbon steels Machinable with routine shop tools and techniques High elastic stiffness Low CTE in combination with relatively high thermal conductivity Low toxicity, low reactivity surface character Can be manufactured in a wide range of sizes and shapes Environmentally friendly CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND AS-SINTERED MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
