CARBIDE FORMS & APPLICATIONS

FORMS: Carbide compositions are available in a variety of forms & purities including:
    > Alloys    > Cermet Compositions    > Powder    > Targets    > Granules    > Pieces

APPLICATIONS: Attributes of carbides make them useful for certain applications.

  • Abrasiveness - used for cutting tools to machine steel
  • Wear-resistant - for surface coating on tool bits
  • Insulative/conductive - for heat shield coatings for space
  • Extreme hardness - used in tank armor, bulletproof vests, industrial applictions
