Carbide Matrix Powders for Infiltration
Kennametal is a leader in the development of matrix and alloy powders used primarily in manufacturing oil and gas matrix PDC drilling tools. Our matrix powders are engineered for high apparent and tap densities, resulting in superior strength properties for resistance to erosive/abrasive wear and impact.
Hot Press Matrix Powders
Kennametal offers a full line of ready-to-press powders engineered for a variety of cutting conditions. Applications for Hot Press Matrix Powders include: stone cutting; asphalt cutting; concrete cutting; diamond-impregnated coring bits; and saw segments for marble, concrete, and asphalt.
Kenface™ Cemented Carbide Powders
Kenface™ is a fully densified, sintered and crushed cemented tungsten carbide powder and is commonly used as a wear rate modifier in a variety of hardfacing applications and diamond tooling processes.
Macrocrystalline Tungsten Carbide Powders
Kennanmetal’s Macrocrystalline Tungsten Carbide powders are the only true macrocrystalline (WCx) powders on the market. Macrocrystalline tungsten carbide is one of the most thermodynamically stable forms of tungsten carbide and is used in a variety of applications including: mining and construction tools, saw blades, wear parts, thermal spray powders, hardfacing (weld) rods, and infiltrated diamond tools
Cast Tungsten Carbide Powders
Kennametal provides tungsten carbide powders produced by the high-temperature reaction of tungsten and carbon via a casting process. Applications include: Hardfacing (weld) rods, infiltrated diamond tools, drill and coring bits, and infiltrated hot press powders for bits and tools.
Tungsten Metal Powders
Tungsten metal powders are powders that are blended with a metal matrix (typically copper or nickel) to create a pseudo-alloy of tungsten. Tungsten metal powders are made to customer spec and are available in a wide variety of cuts with a variety of additives.
