Tungsten Carbide

Tungsten carbide (WC), tungsten and carbon atoms are an inorganic chemical compound containing equal parts. Colloquially, tungsten carbide is often simply called carbide. In its simplest form, this is a gray powder, but pressed and industrial machinery, tools, abrasives, and so may also be constructed for use in jewelry. Hard metal with a Young's modulus of about 550 GPa, about three times the steel is harder and more dense than steel or titanium.
