Tungsten Rhenium Alloys

Material Introduction


W-Re alloys are solid solution alloys. Adding rhenium to tungsten can significantly improve the room temperature toughness and high temperature creep resistance of pure tungsten. The added rhenium content is usually between 3% and 26%, with commonly used alloys being W-3Re, W-5Re, W-10Re and W-25Re. It is an alloy with some of the best general properties of all modern tungsten, and features broad application prospects in cutting-edge fields such as aerospace, nuclear power, electronics and medical treatment.

Fabrication Process


Tungsten-rhenium alloy powder preparation, isostatic pressing, high-temperature sintering, and thermal deformation processing are used to bring the density of tungsten-rhenium alloy close to the theoretical density, in order to obtain the best high-temperature performances.

 

Advantage


Due to the "rhenium effect", tungsten-rhenium alloys have many excellent properties, such as high melting point, good hardness and strength, high plasticity, good resistivity, high thermoelectric potential value, high recrystallization temperature, low vapor pressure, low electron work function and low plastic-brittle transition temperature. Tungsten-rhenium alloys currently offer some of the best overall material properties among all tungsten alloys, and have broad application prospects in cutting-edge fields such as aerospace, nuclear, electronics, and medical treatment.
