A unique material

Cemented carbide is one of the most successful composite engineering materials ever produced. Cemented carbide’s unique combination of strength, hardness, and toughness satisfies the most demanding applications.

A key feature of the cemented carbide is the potential to vary its composition so that the resulting physical and chemical properties ensure maximum resistance to wear, deformation, fracture, corrosion, and oxidation. In addition, the wide variety of shapes and sizes that can be produced using modern powder metallurgical processing offers tremendous scope to design cost-effective solutions to many of the problems of component wear and failure encountered in both the engineering and domestic environment.
