DIAMOND

Where abrasive and impact resistance starts. Engineered using proprietary grain size distribution and processing techniques.

SUBSTRATE

Improves cutter durability with tungsten carbide grade and interface advancements that balance internal stress with maximum bonding strength.

LEACHING

The finishing touch, licensed deep leaching capabilities match depth to each cutter grade for improved thermal stability and game-changing performance.
