Versimax™ Diamond Composite


Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures Versimax, a ceramic-bonded diamond composite with exceptional wear resistance, mechanical strength, and high temperature performance. Our Versimax family of products includes die blanks (nibs) for:

  • Wire drawing
  • Wire stranding
  • Bunching
  • Compacting applications


Versimax wire die blanks are self-supported and do not have carbide support rings. They are available in custom sizes and shapes and are prepared according to customer specifications.

Simple shapes (cylinders, rectangular, triangular prisms, etc.) and more complicated geometries (conical shapes, hollow cylinders, negative features, etc.) can be produced.

Versimax can be attached to tungsten carbide or steel by furnace brazing. Tools can also be produced by press fitting, heat shrink fitting, adhesive bonding or mechanical fixturing.
