Carbide rod of which tungsten carbide grain size ranges from 0.2micron to 0.8micron, cobalt content ranges from 6% to 12%, hardness ranges from 91.4HRA to 95HRA. Carbide rod is the raw material to make cutting tools, such as end mills, reamers, turning tools, carbide planer cutters, carbide drills, carbide boring bar cutters, etc., for cutting or machining cast iron, non-ferrous metals, plastics, chemical fiber, graphite, glass, stone, and ordinary steel, heat-resistant steel, stainless steel, high manganese steel, tool steel, wood, and other difficult-to-cut materials. As one of the top tungsten carbide rod suppliers, Betalent carbide is especially good at carbide bars for cutting difficult-to-cut materials and super hard matels.
Common used Betalent carbide grades table with physical characters and application for carbide rods. To be simple, grade BT45 is for cutting tools machining materials of which hardness is 45(+/-3)HRC, BT50 for 50(+/-3)HRC, BT55(+/-3)HRC for BT(+/-3)HRC, for special applications beyond this table, please consult professional salesperson, there are more grades can be available, and Betalent can offer you solution in carbide grade selection and application with its professional technical team and production facilities.
