When you first came across tungsten carbide rings, you probably wondered to yourself “what the hell is tungsten carbide?” Well, that questions need not remain unanswered. In this article, we tell you everything you need to know about tungsten carbide and if it really makes for a superb ring material.
Tungsten carbide is actually a type of heavy metal that uses either cobalt or nickel alloy as a binder to keep everything together. This means that you get a ring that’s tough and also shock resistant. In terms of durability, it’s one of the most hardwearing material out there. In fact, it’s near indestructible and would hardly ever deform in case of an accident.
Tungsten carbide rings don’t tarnish or rust. It’s safe to use for prolonged contact with skin so it’s highly likely that it will cause you any kind of sores. It’s also hypoallergenic and doesn’t result in rashes unlike other metal rings. Moreover, it doesn’t easily deform so being cut by it isn’t bound to happen in most chances.
One of the best things about tungsten carbide rings is that there’s no need to regularly polish it—ever. Tungsten carbide rings are specifically manufactured and designed to hold a permanent luster so you’ll never have to worry that it would ever look old or shabby on you.
Tungsten carbide is certified to be scratch-proof. It can only be scratched in unusual circumstances such as if you use corundum or diamonds, which means it’s virtually impossible for it to scratch. Normal activities would hardly make a dent on tungsten carbide so you can wear it no matter how active or extreme your lifestyle is.
