Grades

Cobalt. Nickel. Tantalum. We offer them all. In fact, we produce more than 50 carbide grades in a wide range of binder concentrations and particle sizes. We also lead the industry with the tightest overall material specifications.

Our tungsten carbide grades use cobalt binders ranging in concentrations up to 30%, and offer nominal particle sizes from 0.55 microns to 10 microns. The superfine carbides are exceptional for applications requiring sharp edges. In addition, we offer a broad range of tungsten carbide with tantalum to reduce galling in your metal-forming operations.

We are a major producer of nickel carbides for environmental conditions where corrosion, oxidation and wear push your tooling to the limit. We maintain the purity of these carbides through a dedicated nickel room and nickel production processes that eliminate the potential for contamination.
