What is Carbide?

Carbide/tungsten coated sanding tools are extremely long-lasting, and can be used for sanding and the surface treatment of a wide range of materials. Carbide's long life and effective sanding qualities saves time and improve results.

Carbide / tungsten coated tools grinds all building materials such as: glass fibre, paint, rust and much more.

Can be cleaned with steel brush or solvent and used up to 150 times longer than traditional sandpaper.

The grinding tools are available in grain sizes from 3 to 240, and therefore can cover almost all grinding needs.

The abrasive consists of grains of carbide of a particular size depending on the purpose which are welded onto a steel base.

These small metallic grains are the abrasive medium, making carbide extremely durable compared to sandpaper.

Carbide is the market's strongest and most effective abrasive tool. With Carbide grinding tools, you can really grind through - regardless of material is dry or wet.
The durable abrasive media holds up to 150 times longer than sandpaper, and is much more efficient and time-saving than traditional methods.

Carbide coating’s sharpness and other unique properties prevent material from building up on the sanding and grinding tools.

The tools can be used for industrial purposes, as well as for fine finishing jobs.

If material build-up does occur, it is easily removed using a metal brush or a cleaning solvent.

Carbide is the name of our company. But it is also the name of a sintered metal.
The metal is also known as tungsten, which is the basic element of our tools - an extremely hard metal having approx. 98% of the hardness of an industrial diamond.

Q.: Can I sand a wooden floor using carbide grinding discs?

Yes, we produce abrasive floor grinding discs. Due to the sharpness of the abrasive disc, we recommend that you start with a finer grit. After sanding part of the floor you can look at the results and determine whether you should increase grit size.

Q.: What about lacquered and varnished surfaces?

Lacquer and varnish are no problem to remove. Just use the machine at low speed with few revolutions and avoid pressing down too hard against the floor, as this will cause the floor surface to heat up and become sticky. In the case of soft lacquers and varnish, stickiness cannot be avoided. But this is not a problem. Just take the pads off, clean them with a solvent and use them again and again.

Q.: Can carbide tools be used on steel and granite?

No, steel and granite are practically the only materials that Carbide tools cannot be used on. The abrasive tools can, however, be used for sanding on the outside of steel - on paint or rust coatings, but not into the material itself, as the abrasive surface of the tools are simply too hard. However, you can sand and grind on aluminium surfaces using carbide tools.
