Grade Coarse Medium Fine Ultra Fine
FSSS/um >35 >20~35 10~20 <10

3.4 Apparent Density
Apparent density and other physical property should be negotiated by both supplier and demander.
3.5 Sieving
Product should be through mesh of 250um.
3.6 Appearance
Produce should be white crystalline, color should be accordance, there is no visual inclusions in product.

4. Testing Method
4.1 Chemical analysis of tungsten powder should follow GB/T 4324.
4.2 Average FSSS size of tungsten powder follows GB/T 3249.
4.3 Apparent density should follow GB/T or GB/T 5060.
4.4 Sieving of product is determined by supplier and demander.
4.6 Appearance of tungsten powder is checked by visual.

5 Testing Rules
5.1 Inspection and acceptance
5.1.1 Product is tested by quality assurance department of supplier to insure the product is complied to the standard, the product quality certificate needed to be completed.
5.1.2 Demander can inspect the product according to this standard, if the testing result is differ from the standard, then supplier should bring it up within one month to the seller and negotiated by both party.If arbitration is needed, sampling should be taken by both party.
5.2 Lot grouping
Product should be examined by batch. Every lot is composited by the tungsten carbide powder of same grade, quantity is negotiated by both party.
5.3 Testing Items
Testing items and sample quantity follow table 3.

Table 3

Grain Size, Apparent Density GB/T 5314 3.3、3.4 4.2、4.3
Sieving By Batch 3.5 4.4
Appearance By Batch 3.6 4.5

5.4 Sample
Sample should be complied to GB/T 5314.
5.5 Testing result judgement
5.5.1 If there is one item of the product is disqualification, then double amount of sample needs to be tested. If it is still disqualification, then this batch is unqualified.
5.5.2 If one of the grain size, specific surface area, total carbon, free carbon, chemical carbon and oxygen content of the product is unqualified, then double amount of sample needs to be tested. If it is still disqualification, then this batch is unqualified.
5.5.3 Appearance of product is checked by barrel, unqualified barrrel can be scrapped.
5.5.4 When sieving of FWP-1 is unqualified, then double amount of sample needs to be tested. If it is still disqualification, then this batch is unqualified.

6 Mark, packing, transport and storage.
6.1 Packing of product adopt iron drums with double inner sealed polyethylene plastic bag, weight of each bag is determines by both parties.
6.2 Outter packing of product should mark: supplier's name, product name, grade, specification, log number, net weight, also marks of DAMP PROOF, UPSIDE and so on.
