Grade Data - Insert Blanks

Uncoated carbide grades are composed of tungsten carbide and a cobalt binder, with some grades having an addition of titanium carbide and/or tantalum carbide, to enhance critical properties. Uncoated grades are very versatile and can be used in almost any metalcutting application for cutting iron, steel, stainless steel, high-temperature alloys, non-ferrous metals, and even non-metallic materials such as plastics and composites. These grades are best-suited to applications with lower cutting speeds or for short jobs.
