Cemented carbide essentially consists of two main components: hard metal tungsten carbide (WC) and binding agent Co. Carbide contributes to high hardness property in a most important degree for hard metal WC, while cobalt maintains its relative high toughness at the high level of hardness.
With Hot Isostatic Pressing sintering technique, cemented carbide material is fully consolidated by simultaneous application of heat and pressure, producing a close-to-full-density state. Consequently, the technique greatly optimizes rod’s quality, being more stable and reliable.
Our standard carbide rods are available un-ground(metric dimension), but we are capable of satisfying all of your special needs.
Carbide, due to unique characteristics of wear resistance, heat resistance, strength, toughness and hardness that make it ideal for many industrial applications, especially as a material for cutting tools.
