Press release date: April 12, 2017

  • Coating prevents high heat and oxidation which is detrimental to cutting tool performance.
  • Multi-colored hues, while attractive, will dissipate upon use and yet coating will remain fully effective.
  • nACo offers approximately 4,500 Vickers for impressive solid hardness on cutting areas of the tool, for an increase up to 2.5 times compared to uncoated bits.

The range of tools are aimed at use in the high production wood and plastics industries and feature solid carbide compression bits for use on MDF and Laminates and solid carbide 'O' flute tools for use on acrylic materials (Plexiglas® Lucite®) other plastics and wood.
