Carbide bar, Carbide Rod, cemented carbide
Cemented carbide is known to be the most successful and highly used composite engineering material to be ever produced. It is produced using a combination of two materials: cobalt powder and tungsten carbide. The combination of these two materials is used to manufacture wear-resistant tools, often used in areas of application such as mining. Carbide bar has outstanding toughness, strength, and durability that satiates the most demanding applications in diverse industries.
One of the Carbide Rod’s key features is its capacity to vary its composition from one state to another so that the resulting chemical and physical properties ensure maximum resistance to different formations such as corrosion, fracture, wear, oxidation, and deformation. Today, a wide variety of shapes and sizes can be produced by expanding the latest powder metallurgical processes. As a result, industrialists find extreme scope in designing cost-effective solutions to problems related to component failure and wear encountered in fields like engineering and domestic environments.
The first cemented carbide was created using the Tungsten carbide particles held together by a cobalt metal binder. Since then, other carbide components, such as Titanium-Carbide, have been developed from the original form. This component is better suited for carving and cutting steel into different forms and shapes, mainly used for industrial reasons.
