PCD Applications Guidelines

PCD Tools are rated by the number of micrograins of polycrystalline diamond used in the coating process. The higher the number, the finer the grind, higher surface speed capability and closer tolerances in precision cutting for harder materials.

See the application guidelines below to reference the tool perfect for your application.

PCD 13

  • General Purpose Applications
  • Aluminums <12% Silicon
  • Copper Alloys


 PCD 15/18

  • Interrupted Cuts
  • Aluminums >12% Silicon
  • Composite Graphite Epoxy
  • Metal Matrix Composites
