Ceratizit Group, headquartered in Mamer, Luxembourg, has introduced its new CFG series of tungsten carbide grades that have been specifically developed for cold and hot metal forming processes, during the Wire 2022 and Tube 2022 events in Düsseldorf, Germany, taking place June 20-24.

The three CFG grades are reported to be characterised by an outstanding resistance to corrosion, oxidation and adhesion and cover a wide range of mechanical properties and thus applications from standard cold forming stamping processes to high impact and thermal shock applications. Their optimised characteristics are said to result from an innovative carburisation process.

In addition to hardness and toughness, their resistance to both corrosion and oxidation as well as adhesion is vital when it comes to the tool’s performance, states Ceratizit. Additionally, a novel binder composition – combined with excellent resistance to thermal shock – makes them usable for hot and cold forming applications.

Ceratizit explains that this combination of properties means that the new varieties do not simply work but score higher than conventional tungsten carbide grades in a core criterion for any metal forming tool – maximum tool life.

“Many CFG solutions have already proven to have a significantly longer service life compared to tools made from conventional tungsten carbide materials. Our experts will be happy to discuss the right grade for your application at any time,” stated Romain Steckler and Antonello Valsecchi, Segment Account Managers for Metal Forming.

The company is also showcasing a wide range of products, including solutions for bar peeling, the oil and gas industry and wire and tube processing at the Wire and Tube 2022 event, located on stand C53 in hall 9.
