3.5 Appearance Quality
The appearance of tungsten carbide powder is grey and it turns dark with the increase of grain size. The color should be uniform and no visual inclusions.

4 Testing Method
4.1 The main content is calculated by subtraction of impurity content, its analyse method is according to GB/T 4324.
4.2 Total carbon, free carbon content follows GB/T 5124. Chemical carbon is calculated by subtraction of T/C and F/C. Oxygen content follows GB/T 3249. Tungsten carbide powder specific surface area follows GB/T 13390.
4.3 Seiving of the product is determined by both party.
4.4 Appearance is checked by visual method.

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 Inspection item and sampling amount
澳门老永利总部 Please check Table 3 for inspection item and sampling amount.

5.4.1 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.
5.4.2 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.
5.4.3 If the sieving is unqualified, so is this batch.
澳门老永利总部 5.4.4 If the appearance quality is unqualified, so is this batch.
