PowerCarbide® – a family of advanced carbide grades
Building on Sandvik’s world-leading R&D and expertise, the Sandvik PowerCarbide® range is the most significant carbide innovation in the rock drilling industry for decades. Our PowerCarbide® grades – DP55, DP65, GC81, GC85, SH69, SH70, SH75 and XT49 – offer unique combinations of strength, hardness, toughness and wear resistance to optimize any drilling application.
Our unique capabilities behind PowerCarbide®
We continuously work to develop new cemented carbide grades to offer our customers improved products for more productive and efficient operations. Our innovative PowerCarbide® grades enable our buttons to retain their shape as long as possible. This ensures longer grinding intervals, fewer bit changes and improved safety.
Our ability to develop the most advanced material compositions for our cemented carbide buttons is based on our extensive knowledge and experience, and our world-class R&D center in Sweden. Our own tungsten mine also offers unique capabilities in terms of product development and quality control – to provide us with unique competitive advantages in the rock drilling industry.
Reduced environmental footprint
To minimize the environmental footprint of our own operations and our customers, we encourage customers to return used carbide tools to us for recycling. In this way, our unique global carbide recycling system contributes toward a more sustainable future.
