This Guide provides a step-by-step process to arrive at the proper grade selection for tungsten carbide tooling and wear parts, based on the user's input to questions asked about application parameters and operating environment. If used at the outset of a project, the Grade Selector will help customers make the right decisions quickly so they can simplify the grade selection process and accelerate turnaround time for their customers.
The Grade Selector works when the user identifies one of a dozen industry sectors from a drop-down menu. The user must then indicate whether the application will be subjected to thermal shock. Then, by employing a set of drop-down menus, the user must indicate the importance of impact, corrosion and galling/adhesive resistance to the application. The user is then taken to a page with PDFs of the potentially appropriate tooling.
