Whiskered Ceramic Inserts for High-Temp Alloys
The Advantage of Ceramic
Whisker-reinforced ceramic, like our brand new CG-88 grade, provide excellent wear and shock resistance at high surface speeds.
The AlloyCat CG-88 grade is ideal for machining nickel and cobalt based super alloys at metal removal rates 5-10 times higher than carbide.
Whiskered Ceramic vs. Carbide
Whiskered ceramic offers superior performance over carbide, in both finishing and roughing applications due to:
- High temperature resistance – allows for higher cutting speeds.
- Higher toughness – interlaced fibers within the ceramic material improve toughness and bulk strength compared to both carbide and traditional ceramics.
