Product Announcement from General Carbide Corporation
General Carbide manufactures over 50 grades of material which will satisfy any industrial wear application involving erosive wear, abrasive wear and chemical/mechanical corrosive wear including wear applications that also involve impact. Our application engineering staff has years of experience to reliably predict how successful a grade will be in a particular environment. Although high hardness is usually assumed to be the best physical property to resist wear, hardness is not the only property to consider. Grain size, type of binder and the overall operating environment also determine which grade will perform best. Our interactive Grade Selector Guide can help narrow the selection of grades based on input about your particular application. Our preform shaping skills will ensure that stock allowances are kept to a minimum or if a finished part is desired, our hard grinding department will skillfully provide a part with the surface finish and tolerance desired.
