Tungsten Heavy Alloys
Ed Fagan Inc. is a leading distributor of high-density Tungsten Heavy Alloys (ASTM B777-15). Heavy Metal Alloys are produced by powder metallurgy techniques. A range between 90% to 97% Tungsten is mixed with nominal amounts of Nickel, Copper or Iron elements and then compressed. The final phase, liquid sintering, results in a four classes of high-density, machinable Tungsten Heavy Alloys with unique physical properties.
Overall these alloys exhibit extremely useful property benefits such as, tensile strength, ductility and hardness. Twice as heavy as steel and approximately 50% denser than lead, these alloys are utilized where a concentrated mass is required in a limited space. Tungsten Alloys are relatively easy to machine and can be plated or painted to enhance their corrosion protection.
Ed Fagan Inc. is a leading supplier of specialty metal and alloys for manufacturers in the Aerospace/Aviation, Defense, Electronics, Energy, Magnetic, Medical, Lighting, Optical, Research, Telecommunications and other high-technology industries.
