What metal can withstand higher temperatures than tungsten

What metal is more resistant to heat than tungsten?

The melting point for tungsten, which is 3,422, is the highest of all metal elements on the periodic table (the boiling point being 5,930). The melting point of tungsten is higher than any other metal element.

Tungsten is element number 74 in the VIB Group of Period 6. Each atom has the ability to form up 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 has a 4215 degree melting point, which is the highest heat resistance material ever manufactured by humans. It's made from tantalum carbide and hafnium carbide (melting point nearly 4000), both of which have higher melting points than tungsten.

The melting point of a material is dependent on its pressure. When pressure and temperature are higher than critical, however, the material will become superfluid, losing its melting point.
