Tungsten Rhenium Wire

We supply tungsten rhenium wire doped with rhenium, which has much better ductility and stability than pure tungsten in high temperature.


1) Production of specific lighting filaments, thermo-sensitive elements for chromatograph
2) For making heaters and grid wire for TV tube and image-pick up tube
3) For military electronic devices


Rhenium significantly reduces the brittle characteristics of tungsten at room temperature. What is more, the addition of rhenium increases the recrystallization temperature, the ductility, and the ultimate tensile strength of these alloys and decreases the ductile-brittle transition temperatures of tungsten-rhenium alloys.
