Research and Development

The goal of the Research and Development team at Global Tungsten & Powders is to advance our position in materials science and technology.  Working with the marketing and sales team, R&D’s efforts focus on GTP’s core businesses and emerging technologies.  Our strengths include, extraction, synthesis, purification, compaction, sintering, thermos-mechanical metalworking, plasma processing and analysis and testing of refractory metals and alloys.  We work closely with our counterparts at our customers, universities, the US Government, the US military and US National laboratories.


Our research group is committed to new product development, working with manufacturing to improve existing products and developing new manufacturing techniques that benefit GTP and our customers. With hundreds of patents to their credit, our R&D staff continues to stretch the limits of the chemistry of molybdenum and tungsten and their alloys. For more information about our capabilities please contact our Director of Research & Development Juan Trasorras, Ph.D.
