Cemented Carbide Grades

Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures cemented carbide (also known as solid carbide and tungsten carbide (WC)) grades for buttons range from medium coarse to extra coarse.

 

Your Hyperion sales person can offer their expertise in selecting the cemented carbide best suited to solve your needs.
