The Properties And Application of Tungsten trioxide

What is Tungstentrioxide?
Tungsten Trioxide is a light yellow powder crystal of triclinic tungsten. Tungsten trioxide turns to orange tetragonal crystallines when it is heated above 740°C. After cooling, they return to their original condition. It’s stable when heated to room temperature, having a melting point at 1473°C, boiling point higher than 1750°C and relative density 7.16.
Tungsten oxide is the most stable type of tungsten. It’s insoluble in water, and other inorganic acids than hydrofluoric. You can dissolve it in hot concentrated sodium hydroxyide solution or ammonia to make soluble tungstate. When the temperature exceeds 650 degrees, it can be reduced with H2 and reduced further by C. To obtain tungsten-powder at 1000-1100 degrees Celsius
Tungsten trioxide application:
Tungsten Trioxide has many uses in everyday life. This is used for making tungstate in industrial X-ray screens phosphors. Its rich yellow pigments make tungsten oxide a popular choice for paints, ceramics, and other applications.
Tungsten Trioxide is used in production of electrochromic and smart windows. This glass is the combination of the electric switch’s light transmission performance, applied voltage change and the glass of the window. These windows can be tinted by altering the light or heat.
Some tungsten oxide can be used for chemical products like paints and coatings or petroleum industry catalysts. But tungstenoxide is an intermediate product. Large amounts of tungstenoxide are used in metal-tungsten powder and metal-tungsten carbide, which then go into the manufacture of metal tungsten products. Many tungsten alloy products including tungsten copper tungsten nickel iron tungsten silver tungstenrhenium and tungstenthorium, are used widely in the manufacturing of tungsten alloys. Produced cemented carbide products in various grades.
Tungsten trioxide is highly used for its outstanding electrical and thermal properties.
