Electrical conductivity of WC
Dear all,

We all know that WC coatings applied using HVOF are electrically conductive

but is there a measure of the extent of conductivity or resistivity in unit terms like w/m/k or

How do we a certain whether a certain amount of current shall pass through the coatings and the coatings shall be conductive?

Await your reply

Regards

Shantanu

RE: Electrical conductivity of WC
Dear Shantanu,

I am wondering also for the electrical conductivity of WC.
So I have searched the resistivity.
The electrical resistivity of WC is 0.0000530 - 0.0000800 ohm-cm.
Tungsten is 0.00000565 ohm-cm.
However sintered 6%Co+WC has 0.00000200 ohm-cm.
If you want to review the data, refer the following site.
