Sandvik was the first company in history to manufacture rock tools with cemented carbide. We are now very proud to gather our most powerful carbide grades under one name: PowerCarbide.
Our PowerCarbide consists of the grades DP55, DP65, GC80, SH70, XT49, XT90 and XT70, representing the very best materials technology we have to offer – regardless of drilling operation.
We have more R&D capacity for cemented carbide development than anyone else in the industry. Controlling the entire chain, all the way from our own tungsten mine to the production of drill bits, is a unique enabler for developing rock tools.
Our global carbide recycling system is exclusive for the industry and contributes to a sustainable future and the most advanced range of carbides allows us to supply our customers with the ideal solution, tailored to their conditions.
