A tool for both hard and tough materials, as well as soft abrasive materials such as plastics, graphite, copper and brass.
Diamond in a polycrystalline form creates a formidable cutting tool. Benefits include superb hardness, resulting in wear resistance, coupled with excellent toughness thanks to a polycrystalline structure.
In addition, diamond has the highest thermal conductivity of all cutting materials, allowing quick heat transfer from the cutting edge. With the exception of PCD’s high affinity with iron, it does not bond with work piece materials, so under correct cutting parameters, build-up edge is minimal. All Secomax PCD tools have the rake face mirrors polished to prevent friction and provide smooth cutting edges.
