Abstract

The mechanical properties of tungsten, coupled with the severe deformat which occurs when tungsten sheets are rolled from sintered billets, produce a highly laminated structure in the final tungsten. These laminations are easily separated by any mechanical working of the sheet, such as bending or grinding.
