Physical Metallurgy of Refactory Metals and Alloys

Properties of tungsten-rhenium alloys

  • Luna metals suggests 3% Re improves the tensile strength of the alloy; Concept Alloys has 26% Re.
  • This paper mesured 20% Re, with a strength of 1.9 GPa; actual drawn tungsten wire has a strength of 3.3 GPa.
    • Drawing and cold working greatly affects metal, as always!
