Our Powders. Your Products.


Tungsten Carbide Powder 1

Buffalo Tungsten produces high quality tungsten carbide powder that is used in many applications that require excellent hardness and wear properties. Tungsten carbide powder production typically begins with various sizes of our pure tungsten powder. Then carbon powder is added and the material undergoes a carburization process at high temperatures. The resulting alloyed material has a chemical formula of WC. Some of the common applications for tungsten carbide include cutting tools and high wear surfaces. Our rigorous quality assurance program produces powders that meet an exceptional standard of consistency and quality. We are always willing to use our 30 years of experience to develop custom materials that will provide better results for your specific applications and manufacturing processes. Tungsten carbide powder is also used as the basis for our line of thermal spray powders which provide hard, wear resistant surface coatings. We offer a wide range of particle sizes and densities to meet your needs.

Standard Tungsten Carbide Powder - WC

Standard Tungsten Carbide Powders range in size from 0.8 micron to 50 micron. Carbon content is carefully monitored to provide optimal results and blended into uniform, homogeneous lots.

Applications: Cemented Carbide Tools, Contacts

Cast Tungsten Carbide - WCY

Cast carbide is a mixture of WC and W2C carbide phases. It is formed by casting molten carbide with a rapid quench.  Cast carbide has high hardness and abrasion resistance properties.

Applications: Hard Facing
