Versirion™ Diamond Composite


Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures Versirion, a revolutionary silicon carbide and polycrystalline diamond (PCD) composite with increased wear property and thermal stability. Versirion™ is made by a state-of-the-art high pressure high temperature process and is based on the Versimax™ composite developed for wire drawing and wear application.

Versirion exhibits the most superior corrosion resistance.


Versirion 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.
