Frequently Asked Questions about Standard Carbide Powder Grades

What is carbide powder?

Carbide powder is a ready-to-press raw material used by cemented carbide tool and wear components manufacturers to produce intermediate or finished tungsten carbide products.

What are carbide powders in standard, ready-to-press grades made of?

Carbide powder in standard, ready-to-press grades are made of different tungsten carbide powder types and a binder of cobalt or nickel, which are milled. Other additives can be either wax or PEG as an organic binder, and a solvent to produce a homogeneous slurry. This material is then dried using a spray tower, which produces uniform spherical RTP granules. The shape of these granules ensures optimal and consistent flow and compaction in your operations. The physical characteristics of the final sintered product can be controlled by adjusting the grain size of tungsten carbide used and the type and amount of additives included, such as chromium carbide, vanadium carbide, and cubic carbides.
