The US Commerce Secretary has announced that the US will temporarily lift tariffs imposed on Ukraine during the Trump administration to help Ukraine recover its economy and continue to show support for the Russia-Ukraine situation. "For steel mills to remain an economic lifeline for the Ukrainian people, they must be able to export steel," the Commerce Department said in a statement.
The Biden administration will announce the lifting of steel tariffs on Ukraine for one year. Ukraine is a fairly small supplier of U.S. steel, shipping about 218,000 tons in 2019, ranking it 12th among foreign suppliers to the United States, the report said. The U.S. Commerce Department noted that the steel industry is uniquely important to Ukraine's economic strength, with one in 13 people employed in the steel industry.
Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk WS2 powder are still very uncertain.
Tungsten disulfide, as a new type of solid lubricating material, its chemical properties are relatively stable. It can adapt to a variety of extremely harsh conditions, to provide maximum wear resistance, rust, and corrosion protection. And it is environmentally friendly, is not toxic, and will not cause harm to human health. It can be widely used in the automotive industry.
Tungsten disulfide has a layered crystal structure. It has excellent lubricity, with a very low friction coefficient, the dynamic friction coefficient is 0.030, and the static friction coefficient is 0.070. It is coated on the surface of automobile parts, can greatly reduce wear, and bite, eliminate or reduce the friction, and wear caused by equipment maintenance, maintenance, and other problems, and improve the working efficiency and service life of automobile parts.
When the engine is running, the temperature is very high, and the pistons are turning back and forth at a very high speed. Operating in such harsh conditions, pistons wear out faster. Because the friction coefficient of tungsten disulfide is small, the parts used for high temperature or heavy load friction can also maintain a lubrication effect. At this point, it is coated on the surface of the piston, which will reduce wear, reduce temperature, and prolong the service life.
The piston ring is the least durable part of the engine. The piston ring rotates with the piston at high speed and is affected by the high temperature and high-pressure gas in the cylinder. The oil is particularly prone to deterioration at high temperatures, so its wear is very serious. With tungsten disulfide, friction is reduced and it is possible to move with the piston at high speed, high pressure, high temperature, and extremely difficult lubrication conditions.
The crankshaft is one of the most important parts of the engine, and its working state is also high-speed rotation, so it must be able to resist wear and fatigue. Journal surface is generally after high-frequency quenching or nitriding treatment, its surface coated with tungsten disulfide and fine grinding, and its wear resistance and fatigue strength will be greatly improved.
The universal joint, steering knuckle, spring steel bushing, front, and rear brake CAM bushing, are relatively difficult to be greased. In frequent operation, the lubricating oil will deteriorate and lose lubrication effect, and tungsten disulfide has excellent mechanical stability and thermal stability, which can well ensure that these parts enjoy lubrication effect and reduce wear.
Tungsten disulfide has excellent compatibility, water erosion resistance, and affinity with most paints, solvents, and fuels. It ensures that there is always a layer of lubrication on the surface of the bearings in the water pump and the silicone fan clutch as well as the helical gears that drive the distributor, so as to protect against rust and corrosion.
With these excellent properties, tungsten disulfide can also be used in the machinery industry, plastic industry, medical equipment industry, as well as military, aerospace, satellite, spacecraft, and other high-tech fields.

Europe's immediate goal of reducing its dependence on Russian gas in response to the conflict with Ukraine presents a rare opportunity for the United States, the world's largest gas producer. America's LNG exporters have made a fortune this time. Investors are bullish on the future of natural gas, as evidenced by the recent record high share price of Energy company Chenier.
But the outlook for more than a dozen new LNG projects is highly uncertain as construction costs rise, US gas prices soar and climate policymakers seek to move away from a long-term reliance on fossil fuels. Even the most advanced projects can take years to become operational.
Currently, the total U.S. LNG WS2 powder are expected to continue to rise in the future.
