Which is the strongest pure elemental metal? Tungsten / wolfram, Magnesium or Bishmuth? How many tons they can take? We are going to test that out with our 150 ton hydraulic press and 150 ton force sensor. Don't try this at home! we are professional and all people were behind really strong blast shield and had personal protection equipment.

  • At round about 100 tons it definitely started deforming, maybe earlier. But that is hard to tell since it mostly dented the tool beforehand.

  • I think when you get the safety box all built, you should add in cadmium, gold, silver, zinc, and platinum to crush along with the nickel cube.

  • The problem with thungsten is that it cant be melted and made into a cube by normal means. People use powder metallurgy to form mechanical thungsten parts by compresing mix of thungsten powder and other metals at high temperatures. If pure thungsten was smelted into cube then it would be much more harder! You can see the smaller cube being crushed to dust, but that is misleading because its not "solid" piece of thungsten.

  • So, this cube took roughly 20k bar of pressure. A plutonium pit in a nuclear weapon experiences several million bar of pressure in a couple of microseconds when the shock waves of the explosives around it converge.

  • If you were to try and press tungsten carbide it would severely damage your tool steel anvils you are pressing with. General Electric used to make synthetic diamonds in extremely high pressure 'belt' apparatus presses in what was called their 'diamond mine' lab, where a tungsten carbide cylinder comprising the die had to be pressed inside a very hard tool steel belt. On occassion if the cylinder was misaligned with the hole in the steel belt when pressing it in, the tungsten carbide would cut right through the tool steel like it wasn't there..I've seen this happen firsthand. These presses were capable of ~ 500 tons if I recall. There was even a press that was ~ 2 stories tall capable of ~ 2 million pounds (1000 tons).

  • Ied say it was more like 14 ish ton as that’s when the metal started to really move and then crumble at the edges. The big piece started to deform at about 122 but it’s was sinking so it may have been an optical illusion, personally I can’t wait to see that other material we discover or make in the years to come.
