Didco Thermally Stable Polycrystalline - TSP Diamond Inserts

Thermally Stable Polycrystalline (TSP) diamond can be manufactured into a variety of sizes and shapes (Cubes, Cylinders, Discs, Rectangles, Triangles, Spheres etc.) that can be inserted into cutting tools, drilling bits, reamers, wire drawing dies, and other wear-resistant components.

TSP mining and oil drilling bits are best suited for more abrasive or broken formations. Drill bits and reaming shells made with TSP diamonds are suitable for drilling in soft rocks with hardness below 7 degrees, such as lime rock, marble, shale, etc; and in medium to hard rocks with coarse grains, such as sedimentary rock. 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.

One significant advantage of DIDCO’s TSP diamond is its high thermal stability. Our TSP products can withstand high temperatures of ~1200 degrees centigrade in a non-oxidizing atmosphere. Moreover, the relative wear resistance of the TSP diamond body remains the same under high temperature conditions.

Because of these excellent properties, our TSP products can be made into tools and other products by means of high-temperature brazing or high-temperature sintering.

Custom sizes, shapes, angles and coatings available.

Didco Synthetic Diamond Grits Overview

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.


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.


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.
