Tungsten Carbide Powders

Kennametal was founded in 1938 based on an invention for improving the properties of tungsten carbide, which enabled a significant increase in productivity for the machining of steel.

Available in several grades from 0.8 micron to 4.8 micronmesh to micron sizes

Kennametal Tungsten Carbide Powders

Kennametal provides a variety of tungsten carbide powders. Exacting quality control, large uniform batches, high purity, and particle size uniformity enhance its desirability by manufacturers of cemented tungsten carbide.

Tungsten & Tungsten Carbide Wear Components

Produced by Kennametals patented thermit process, Macrocrystalline tungsten carbidepowder is ideally suited to all diamond tool applications. Low internal porosity combined with high packing density results in a tool with extreme wear resistance levels.

Monocarbide, fully carburized and dense

In compression, the strength of tungsten carbide (WC) is greater than any material ever bined with its high thermal conductivity, intense strength, and extreme stiffness, tungsten carbide is the choice material for all types ofmetal forming and cutting tools.What Makes Kennametal Powders Different?

Boron Nitride and Ceramic Components

Produced by solid carburization of tungsten powder, this polycrystalline material is used in diamond tools as a harder and wear rate modifier. Once mixed with cobalt and binder, tungsten carbide is pressed and sintered. Sintered tungsten is used to cut steel, drill circuit boards and a multitude of other high tech applications in the automobile and aerospace industries, and beyond.

High Performance Solid Carbide Drills

Cladding, Welding, and Thermal Spray


Available in a wide range of sizes from 40 US mesh to micron sizes

This material is produced by the high temperature reaction of tungsten and carbon via a casting process. Blends are reacted in graphite, cast, and then crushed to size. Cast tungsten carbide is among the hardest and most abrasion resistant materials used in diamond tooling.

High Performance HSS and Carbide Taps

Available from 40 US mesh (420 micron) down through -400 mesh (37 micron)
