Tungsten carbide rods are tungsten steel round rods, also known as tungsten steel rods. Cemented carbide is a composite material composed of a refractory metal compound (hard phase) and a bonding metal (bonding phase) produced by powder metallurgy. Cemented carbide is also called tungsten steel, which is a different local name.
Cemented carbide (WC) is an inorganic compound containing equal amounts of tungsten and carbon atoms. In its most basic form, it is a subtle gray powder, but it can be incorporated into industrial machinery, tools, abrasives, and into shapes for use. Cemented carbide contains three times the carbon content of steel and has a denser crystal structure than steel and titanium. Its hardness is comparable to that of diamond, and it can only be ground into cemented carbide, which is ground with cubic boron nitride abrasive.
