Ion exchange method is an economic method to produce blue tungsten oxide which is developed in recent years for tungsten hydrometallurgical technology. With update and improvement of extracting equipment of tungsten, tungsten product manufacture has been improved a lot.

Ion exchange method producing blue tungsten oxide principle is due to tungsten in aqueous solution of various anions affinity to exchange resin, the one with bigger affinity will exchange the smaller one. With the ongoing of exchange process, other anions are substituted by tungsten and purified, especially for element like Si, P, As.

Ion exchange method producing blue tungsten oxide has the following process: grinding, leaching, ion exchange, ammonium paratungstate crystallization, dry, calcination. This method has been widely used in factory.
