So what makes tungsten carbide one of the most demanded materials in the oil industry? Various properties of tungsten carbide make it the best selling material for manufacturing sleeves/bushing for the oil industry. Following are the key features that make it a favorite in the industry:

Tungsten carbide Lower bearing sleeve
• Hardness and strength- Tungsten carbide is an extremely sturdy material with its hardness factor being 5 times higher than tool steel.
• Long life- the sturdiness of tungsten carbide also makes it a strong material to be used as sleeves in the oil industry where the chief requirement is for the material to stay in shape irrespective of the changing temperatures.
• Corrosion resistant- The factors prevalent in the oil industry create high levels of corrosions and abrasion on the metal products used. Tungsten carbide sleeves used in the oil industry are however corrosion resistant with efficient heat conduction making them a perfect material for usage in the industry.
• Low maintenance- Various other properties like high compression, strength and stability make it highly efficient and hence needing extremely low maintenance, thereby adding life to the material.
