Properties and Uses of 3D Metal Printing Powder Cobalt-Chromium-Tungsten CoCrW Alloy Powder

As the world deals with potential supply shortages, oil prices are soaring again, with more dramatic spikes and sudden drops expected.

For consumers, that means more expensive gas for longer - prices at the pump remain above $4 a gallon. For the economy, that means more inflation. In addition to the pressure on consumers, any business that relies on oil -- from airlines and truck drivers to chemical companies and plastics producers -- will face higher costs.

Mr Pickering estimates that 2m to 3m barrels a day of Russian oil shipped by water are frozen out of the market with no direct buyers. Due to the soaring oil price, the price of the 3D Metal Printing Powder in the chemical industry will also

 be greatly affected. He said China and India are continuing to buy Russian crude. "I'm sure there will be others willing to take on more over time," he said. Mr Pickering said he did not expect oil to return to $130 a barrel, but added that it could happen. West Texas Intermediate for April settled 7% higher at $112.12 a barrel on Monday.

Francisco Branch, head of commodities and derivatives at Bank of America, said the US market was ready for cyclical price spikes and price swings in the product name.

What is cobalt chromium tungsten?

Cobalt chromium tungsten alloy (CoCrW) is one of the Stellite alloys. Stellite alloy is a hard alloy that can withstand various wear, corrosion, and high-temperature oxidation. The so-called cobalt-based alloy. Stellite has initially been a binary cobalt-chromium alloy and later developed into a cobalt-chromium-tungsten ternary composition. Cobalt-chromium-tungsten alloy is a kind of alloy with cobalt as the main component, containing a considerable amount of chromium, tungsten, and small nickel molybdenum, silicon, carbon, niobium, tantalum, and other alloying elements, and occasionally also containing iron. According to the alloy's different components, they can be made into welding wire, the powder used for hard surface welding, thermal spraying, spray welding, and other processes, and can also be made into castings and forgings and powder metallurgy parts.


The application of cobalt-chromium tungsten?

Cobalt chromium tungsten alloy is widely used in locomotive diesel engines, nuclear power plant valves, marine diesel engines, and various aircraft.


Early cobalt-chromium-tungsten alloys were produced by non-vacuum smelting and casting processes. Later developed alloys, such as Mar-M509 alloy, are produced by vacuum smelting and vacuum casting because they contain more active elements such as zirconium and boron.

Generally, cobalt-chromium-tungsten alloy lacks a coherent strengthening phase. Although the strength is low at medium temperature (only 50-75% of nickel-based alloy), it has higher strength, good thermal fatigue resistance, and thermal corrosion resistance above 980℃. And abrasion resistance, and has better weldability. It is suitable for making guide vanes and nozzle guide vanes for aviation jet engines, industrial gas turbines, ship gas turbines, and diesel engine nozzles.


Spherical cobalt-chromium-tungsten alloy powders are mostly used for 3D printing of biomedical materials such as teeth, human stents, and artificial joints. The powder can be used in various types of metal 3D printers, including Laser melting equipment from Renishaw, Germany, EOS (EOSINT M series), Concept Laser, and 3D systems from the United States, as well as selected areas developed by domestic scientific research institutions and enterprises Laser melting equipment, such as Huashu Hi-Tech, Blite, etc. The powder can be used in laser/electron beam additive manufacturing (SLM/EBM), powder metallurgy (PM), spraying, welding, and other processes.


TRUNNANO (aka. Luoyang Tongrun Nano Technology Co. Ltd.) is a trusted global chemical material supplier & manufacturer with over 12 years' experience in providing super high-quality chemicals and Nanomaterials. Our company's 3D printing metal powder CoCrW powder has high purity, adequate particle size, and impurity content. Lower, please contact us if necessary.


Prior to the impact of COVID-19 on the chemicals and materials industry and the price of the 3D Metal Printing Powder, many industry observers expected low to flat growth in 2021 in all regions outside Asia, with many countries seeing slower growth compared to recent years. Operational excellence has long been a hallmark of the chemical industry, and many companies are financially able to withstand short-term dips in end-market demand due to rapid leverage from reduced capex on hand.

The analysis shows that, whatever the final course of the pandemic, we can expect the inevitable long-term effects. Workplaces are expected to slowly return to pre-COVID-19 practices. Companies investing in enterprise-wide digital initiatives saw these "payoffs" in the early pandemic environment.

TRUNNANO provides high quality 3D Metal Printing Powder with reasonable price. In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide 3D Metal Printing Powder with competitive price. said Amy Gao, sales manager of TRUNNANO. Please feel free to contact us to get the latest price.
