Description

Tungsten is a naturally occurring element that has the second highest melting point out of all the elements. This is why it has been so heavily used in circumstances that require the metal to sustain high temperatures. This includes aerospace applications, heating elements in electrical powered furnaces, etc. Additionally, it is both ductile and soft. The former makes it suitable for wiring, while the latter allows it to be cut easily. According to the metal standards set by the Resistance Welding Manufacturing Alliance, Tungsten is a class 13 material.
