How to distinguish between tungsten steel and stainless steel
Tungsten steel is a type of alloy steel with high hardness, strength, and density, mainly composed of elements such as tungsten, cobalt, and carbon. It has extremely high wear and corrosion resistance, suitable for manufacturing high-strength and high hardness components such as high-speed cutting tools and molds.
Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant alloy steel mainly composed of elements such as chromium and nickel. It is lightweight, has good corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, and aesthetics, and is suitable for manufacturing kitchenware, medical equipment, building decoration, and other fields.
In different fields, it is more appropriate to choose different materials due to their different physical properties. In terms of price, due to different manufacturing processes and compositions, the price of tungsten steel is higher than that of stainless steel. In terms of environmental protection, tungsten steel and stainless steel are relatively environmentally friendly materials that can be recycled.
Therefore, both tungsten steel and stainless steel are excellent metal materials, and they have wide applications in industry and daily life.
