Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, arrived in Taiwan, becoming the highest-ranking US official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
The move was interpreted as a direct threat by China, which claims the island is part of its territory, and Beijing has repeatedly warned the US that its military will not "sit idly by" and "will take strong countermeasures".
As the international community waits to see how China will react, chipmakers in the business community are already feeling the pain of the brewing conflict between the US and China over Taiwan.
Semiconductor stocks tumbled on Tuesday in anticipation of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan.
Shares in TSMC, the world's largest and most valuable semiconductor maker, worth $440 billion, fell 2.4 per cent on Tuesday. Its Taiwanese counterparts United Microelectronics and MediaTek fell 3% and 1.6% respectively. Meanwhile, shares of the US chipmaker Intel fell 1.5 per cent on the same day.
As Ms Pelosi prepares to meet Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen, on Wednesday, technology investors are keeping a close eye on her actions-and any signs of retaliation from China. In the event of a dispute between China and the US, chipmakers, especially in Taiwan, are likely to be collateral damage.
Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk tungsten disulfide are still very uncertain.
What is WS2 coating?
Tungsten disulfide is an extremely smooth dry film lubrication coating. Tungsten disulfide friction coefficient is very low (only 0.03), which is lower than that of Teflon, graphite or molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Compared with many other lubricant materials, the film is very durable and can withstand extremely high loads of more than 300000 psi. WS2 has unparalleled performance in lubrication, non-stick, low resistance, wear life and load rating.
What are advantages of tungsten disulfide?
WS2 is an excellent demoulding material for plastic moulds, extrusion moulds and other demoulding applications.
WS2 eliminates the need for liquid lubricants and can also be used with petrified oils, greases, synthetic oils, silicone lubricants and hydraulic oils. It has an affinity for lubricants and maintains the fluid power layer. It helps to keep the oil or grease on the surface, thus further increasing lubrication.
In the case of less than 1 micron thick, the coating can be applied to high-precision parts without tolerance problems.
WS2 is also a rather inert and non-toxic material, which has been used in medical devices and food processing applications.
WS2 is applied to customer substrates through high-speed ambient temperature process. It does not cause the substrate material to anneal or warp.
WS2 can be used alone or in combination with our PVD hard coating to improve durability.
WS2 coating properties
Lubricity-the lowest friction coefficient of solid materials!
The dynamic friction coefficient is 0.03 and the static friction coefficient is 0.07.
Excellent release performance. They don't stick together.
Prevent scratches, jams or cold welds.
It can be used at a load of more than 300000 pounds per square inch!
High temperature resistance.
Extremely thin 1 stroke 2 micron coating thickness.
Unlike many powder lubricants, it can be bonded to the substrate without using a binder.
Do not crumb, peel off or peel off.
Ultra-thin-suitable for high precision components.
WS2 eliminates the need for liquid lubricants.
Can be used with oil and grease. It has an affinity for lubricants and maintains a fluid dynamic layer.
How is WS2 coating applied?
The ocean mechanism.
Hydraulic / pneumatic.
Power transmission components.
Pistons and rings.
Cam and cam followers.
Locate the device.
Slide or rotate the assembly.
Food processing equipment.

Germany has begun talks with Senegal on gas extraction and LNG supplies. Mr. Scholz recently visited a solar farm in Dakar. He told a news conference that he was willing to work more closely with Senegal on renewable energy. Senegal's president told a news conference that his country was ready to supply liquefied natural gas to the European market.
The global economy may be facing its greatest test since World War II amid the ongoing threats of COVID-19, the Conflict between Russia and Ukraine, heightened financial market volatility, and climate change, IMF Managing Director Kristina Georgieva warned in an article posted on the IMF's website.
Some 30 countries have imposed restrictions on trade in food, energy, and other key commodities since the outbreak of the Conflict, the article noted. That would raise trade barriers, disrupt global supply chains, drag down economic growth and undo years of economic gains. If countries let it go, the costs will be enormous and everyone will be affected.
