Versirion™ and Versimax™ Advantages


Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures Versirion and Versimax, which exhibit superior wear resistance, high temperature performance, and high strength approaching that of cobalt-sintered polycrystalline diamond (PCD), with the addition of superior thermal stability. See below for additional information.


  • Bunching
  • Compacting
  • Drawing
  • Extrusion
  • Stranding
  • Wear applications



  • Superior thermal stability compared to that of PCD
  • Significantly reduced coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) mismatch
  • Thermally stable up to 1400°C, which creates less risk of failures during application
  • Easy to process:
    • Electrically conductive: EDM processability allows flexibility in cutting various geometries
    • Sizes larger than those of unsupported PCD: diameter - 35 mm, height - 35 mm
    • Does not require polishing of the bore to achieve the surface finish of the wire
    • Ability to be easily brazed or shrink fitted into casing
  • Versatility: ferrous and non-ferrous wires
  • Wear resistance comparable to that of PCD and corrosion resistance slightly better than that of PCD.


Strength retained after thermal exposure


Your Hyperion sales person can offer their expertise in selecting the wire die product best suited to solve your needs.


In addition, Versimax is ideally suited for demanding nozzle wear applications.
