Choose between two available grades of high-quality carbide. Due to its excellent wear resistance and ability to withstand medium shock, the standard grade is recommended for all general purpose applications and is widely used for solid carbide rotary tools.
Artco micro-grain carbide represents the latest in premium grade carbide. Its sub-micron grain size, combined with a higher cobalt content and modern Hot Isostacic-Pressing (HIP) process, results in a greatly increased Transverse Rupture Strength (TRS), The end result is a longer tool life, less wear and greater cutting edge retention. Cutters stay sharper longer, are less apt to chip and break, and leave a better finish.
Micrograin Carbide "Split" Blanks are available - see Micrograin Carbide "Splits".
All carbide blanks are centerless ground to tolerance of +0.0000"/-0.0005".
