Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2019 -- Cemented Carbide Market: Introduction
Cemented carbide consists of fine particles of carbide cement and metal composites. It is a hard material, which is primarily used as a cutting tool material. Cemented carbide is available in the form of tungsten carbide (WC), titanium carbide (TiC), and tantalum carbide (TaC) as aggregate. Cemented carbide cutters provide superior surface finish and allow faster machining than high-speed steel. Carbide tools can withstand higher temperatures than the standard high-speed steel tools. Carbide is used to cut tough materials such as carbon steel or stainless steel. Cemented carbide possesses properties such as durability, hardness, toughness, wear & abrasion resistance, and pressure resistance.

Cemented carbides are metal alloy composites, where carbide particles act as aggregates and metallic binders serve as matrix. The process of combining carbide particles with binders is known as sintering. During the process, the binder is cementing the carbide grains and thereby creates the metal composite. A carbide producer can alter the carbide's performance to particular applications by controlling various parameters such as grain size, cobalt content, and alloy carbides and carbon content.
