Radiation Shielding and High Density Materials for Well Logging Instrumentation

Fabricated Tungsten Alloys Enhance Oil and Gas Drilling.

H.C. Starck’s high tech materials, technologies and development expertise are producing value added solutions for the high performance demands of the oil and gas drilling industry.

As one of the world’s leading producers of refractory metals such as tantalum, niobium, molybdenum and tungsten, H.C. Starck’s tungsten alloys has become an essential material for a wide variety of applications including balance weights, radiation protection, vibration absorbers, heat transfer and drilling bars. It has the highest melting point of any metal and its high density is equaled only by gold, platinum, and a few other rare and expensive metals.
