Hyperion Grade 6UD High Performance Cemented Carbide


Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures cemented carbide grade 6UD, a high performance grade for fine wire wet drawing. It is an ultrafine cemented carbide (also known as solid carbide or tungsten carbide (WC)) in combination with special additives that maximize corrosion resistance without losing toughness. Hyperion's Sinter-HIP process guarantees premium cemented carbide quality.
