Coated Saw Grit

  • Enhanced crystal retention in bond matrix
    Usually the pull-out ratio of coated grit can be reduced by 20-40% compared to that of uncoated grit. Moreover, most crystals can be used to their full cutting potential.
  • High flexibility in selection of bond matrix
    Coatings can protect diamond grit from aggressive metal bonding powders such as chromium, iron and tungsten, which allow the tool manufacturer more flexibility in selection of the bond matrix.
  • Improved cutting efficiency
    The most important factor affecting the cutting efficiency of tools is the particle protrusion height in the bond matrix. Usually the greater protrusion height, the better cutting efficiency. After applying coatings to diamond, the protrusion height of the particles is increased by 30%. In most cases, 60/80 can be widely used in segments.
  • Economics
    On the one hand, toolmakers can use more cost effective metal powders in the bond matrix, which in effect reduces bonding costs. On the other hand, smaller grit sizes and lower grit concentrations can be selected for tool manufacturing, which reduces diamond costs.

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Diamond | CVD Products

Chemical Vapor Deposition diamond is manufactured by means of a diamond synthesis technology in which a low pressure reactor is used to combine a thermal or plasma activating agent with a gas-phase carbon to produce a chemical reaction which results in polycrystalline diamond crystal growth or deposition upon a solid surface or substrate.


Didco Thermally Stable Polycrystalline - TSP Diamond Inserts

Thermally Stable Polycrystalline diamond can be manufactured into a variety of sizes and shapes that can be inserted into cutting tools, drilling bits, reamers, wire drawing dies, and other wear-resistant components. The results obtained in drilling medium to hard rocks and non-uniform abrasive formations are much better than those obtained with drill bits impregnated or surface-set with single, natural diamond crystals.


PCD Tool Blanks | High Performance Polycrystalline Diamond Composite

DIDCO Polycrystalline Diamond Composite is manufactured using top quality synthetic diamond grit, sintered together by way of extremely high temperature and pressure to create a polycrystalline diamond layer. As more applications evolve requiring the use of polycrystalline diamond products, more industries will come to realize the gains and benefits these products have to offer.
