Hi,
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?

Regards,

The paper at the link:
http://www.physics.sk/aps/pubs/2001/...1-51-6-359.pdf
suggests that the emissivity of WC = 0.85
