Gold Properties and tungsten Properties
Gold has a density of 19.30 grams per cubic centimeter at room temprature and a liquid density at the melting point of 1,947.5°F of 17.31 grams per cubic centimeter. tungsten has a density of 19.25 grams per cubic centimeter at room temprature and a liquid density of 17.6 grams per cubic centimeter at the melting point of 6,192°F. So gold plated tungsten can be used as gold substitution or platinum substitution.
Advantages of Gold Plated Tungsten as Gold Substitution and Platinum Substitution
Tungsten is environmental-friendly, durable and hardness, the most important is that its density of 19.25g/cm3 is just about the same density as gold (19.3g/cm3), which bears the similar specific gravity. These advantages make tungsten enjoys the superiority to be the best substitute for the costly metal of gold substitution or platinum substitution. Nowadays, the price of the gold is higher and higher.More and more would like to choose gold substitution. So gold plated tungsten as gold substitution or platinum substitution is more popular in the market.
