Tungsten and titanium are both great options for a durable, scratch resistant men's wedding band. But which one is stronger? Titanium is the lighter option and naturally hypoallergenic but it isn't as hard as tungsten. Tungsten carbide (WC) is much harder than titanium and has the highest melting point of any metal on Earth. It's also highly corrosion resistant and very strong.
However, if you're worried about the potential of cracking or bending your ring then titanium might be a better choice for you as it is more flexible. Tungsten is brittle and can only be bent or flexed a limited amount before it cracks, unlike titanium which can bend and flex without breaking. It's also worth mentioning that tungsten can contain cobalt which can cause allergic reactions in some people, so check the label if you have any allergies to other metals.
Titanium is a biocompatible metal that's safe to use for surgical implants and body piercings. It's also used in many dental and orthopedic applications due to its light weight and strength. It's often mixed with other metals to make them stronger and more durable, for example titanium is sometimes combined with cobalt in order to make it stronger and more durable.
Both titanium and tungsten carbide are available in a wide range of designs and colors. Tungsten is usually found in gunmetal and silver colors fashioned into contemporary sleek styles while titanium can be anodized to convert it into pinks, reds and other unique hues. Both materials are also available with a satin finish which adds a more robust texture to the rings.
