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 applications.
Versirion and Versimax exhibit superior wear resistance, high temperature performance, and high strength approaching that of cobalt-sintered PCD, with the addition of superior thermal stability. Versirion exhibits the most superior corrosion resistance.
VERSIRION™ AND VERSIMAX™ PRODUCT OFFERING
Average Grain Size
Average 5 µm
Low carbon steel
Copper with higher surface finish requirement
Average 10 µm
Low carbon steel
Copper with lower surface finish requirement
Average 20 µm
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.
Material Propery Test Data
Strength retained after thermal exposure
G-ratio when wet milling granite.
Weight loss at grit blasting
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.
*PCD is manufactured from man-made (synthetic) diamond.
