Our Powders. Your Products.
Buffalo Tungsten's joint venture company Niagara Refining produces tungsten intermediates such as ammonium paratungstate (APT) and tungsten oxides (WO3). These materials are produced from tungsten ores and concentrates or recycled tungsten hard scrap. Buffalo Tungsten purchases these raw materials for conversion in our facility. Typical order quantities are full container loads of concentrates. We purchase tungsten caride scrap in varying quantities from both domestic and foreign sources. It is Buffalo Tungsten's policy to only purchase raw materials from conflict free sources.
These tungsten intermediate materials are primarily reduced to pure tungsten powder in Buffalo Tungsten's furnaces under a hydrogen atmosphere. Our finished tungsten powder materials typically have a purity greater than 99.99%. The intermediate tungsten chemicals are also used in a variety of other applications such as tungstates, catalysts, and pigments.
