Our carbide grades
Submicron grain 6% Co:
Universal grade for the machining of non-ferrous metals, aluminium, copper, porcelain, plastics, cast iron, steel of low hardness and fibre reinforced materials. High wear resistance, excellent suitability for diamond coating.
Submicron grain 10% Co:
Submicron grade with a good impact strength and TRS for the machining of non-ferrous metals, nickel alloys steels as well as hardened, alloyed, cast and stainless steel. Main submicron grade with broad applications for rotating, solid carbide tools.
Submicron grain 12% Co:
The very high fracture toughness results in an extraordinary cutting edge strength. This ensure excellent tool life at mill roughing of heavily machinable materials like Inconel 718, high carbide steel or titanium alloys.
Fine grain 9% Co:
With a high cutting edge strength and wear resistance - coupled with high temperature resistance - this grade is primarily aimed at mill roughing, or drilling of heavily machinable materials. (examples: stainless steel and non corrosive nickel-base alloys)
Fine grain 12% Co:
The exceptional TRS paired with a high fracture toughness, predestines this fine grain grade for the application of difficult to machine materials. High usability in interrupted cutting applications.
Ultrafine grain 9% Co:
Outstanding ultrafine grade for the milling of hardened steel >50HRC, HSC machining for mould constructions, wear resistant tools for micromechanics and machining of new composite materials.
Ultrafine grain 12% Co:
A good impact strength and TRS combined with high hardness is the essential advantage of this ultrafine grade. For machining of materials hardened up to 64HRC, mould constructions and machining of titanium alloys as well as high alloyed steels.
Medium grain 12% Co:
This medium grain size grade with 12 % Co has an excellent corrosion resistance combined with a very good TRS and fracture toughness. This grade is best suited for punches and dies in sophisticated applications.
Medium grain 15% Co:
With a 15 % Co binder, this grade has an excellent TRS level with optimal fracture toughness. This grade is best for punches, dies, thick sheet metal stamping or high impact wear parts.
Submicron grade 9% Ni:
Caused by the use of Nickel as binder, this grade is extremely corrosion resistant in liquids with low ph and is outstanding in wear part applications under corrosive conditions for example in in the food industry.
