Hyperion Grade C3D Super Performance Cemented Carbide


Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures cemented tungsten carbide grade C3D, the new super performance grade with never-before-seen properties. It is an ultrafine cemented tungsten carbide in combination with special additives that maximize corrosion resistance and exhibit extreme wear resistance. Our unique sinter-HIP process guarantees outstanding quality.


Hyperion Grade C3D

Hyperion grade C3D was created to be your super performance solution for the following drawing processes:

  • Welding wire
  • Low and high carbon steel
  • PC strand.


Hyperion grade C3D prevents corrosion and wear out by:

  • Very low cobalt leaching
  • Integrity of the carbide matrix ensures the material wear resistance.


Hyperion grade C3D creates these performance benefits:

  • Die life increased up to 5 times vs those of standard grades
  • Less machine downtime
  • Lower quality rods can be used
  • High polishing speed.


Hyperion grade C3D can be used in standard ISO, JIS, and DIN nibs or in your tailor-made design.
