For the purpose of my FYP I am carrying out temperature analysis on a single point cutting tool while machining on a lathe. I am using a handheld infrared camera to determine this.

In order to carry this out accurately the emissivity of the material must be inputted to the device as a parameter...something I cannot find!

Would anyone out there know the emissivity of tungsten carbide or perhaps even an approximate value?

The paper at the link:
suggests that the emissivity of WC = 0.85
