Tungsten is a unique element having the highest melting point of all metals, a density almost twice that of lead, and hardness close to that of diamond when in tungsten carbide form. Due to its unique intrinsic properties, tungsten is ideally suited to the needs of all major heavy industries, such as manufacturing, oil & gas, construction, energy, automotive, medical, electronics and aviation. Tungsten is also an essential element in the steel industry, where its usage ranges from the production of stainless steel, steel alloys to superalloys. The tungsten intermediate chemicals manufactured at Masan Tungsten LLC in Thai Nguyen end up in a wide variety of end-use applications. The majority of our customers further process these chemicals into tungsten carbides and tungsten metal powders, which in turn are further processed into a range of downstream products such as cutting tools and mill products.
