What metal is more resistant to heat than tungsten?
The melting point for tungsten, which is 3,422°F (boiling at 5,930°F), is the highest of all metal elements on the periodic table. No metal element is higher in melting point than the tungsten.
Tungsten is the element 74 in the VIB Group of the 6th Period of the Periodic Table. This means that every atom is capable of forming six metal bond.
There are elements that can be heated higher than tungsten. Solid carbon can reach temperatures as high as 3,627 degrees c. However, carbon does not have a fixed melting temperature (one atmosphere), because it sublimates between 3627 and 4330 degrees c.
Ta4HfC5, with a melting temperature of 4215 degrees, is currently the heat-resistant material that humans have created. It's made from tantalum carbide and hafnium carbide (melting point nearly 4000), both of which are more heat resistant than tungsten.
The melting point of a material is dependent on its pressure. The higher the pressure the higher it will be. But when temperature and pressure exceed critical levels, the material loses melting point and becomes superfluid.
