Cerbide(TM): Longer-Wearing, Cost-Effective Material Offers Wear Parts Industry Unprecedented Value

Revolutionary polycrystalline tungsten carbide out-performs traditional wear part materials

Orchard Park, NY - Following six years of intensive R&D effort, Cerbide, Inc. introduces an exceptionally long-wearing polycrystalline tungsten carbide material for use in the manufacture of low-impact wear parts - Cerbide(TM).

With 2-22 times (200%+) longer wear, Cerbide(TM) represents a major industry breakthrough.

An innovative combination of the properties of ceramics and cemented tungsten carbide allows Cerbide(TM) to perform at measurably higher levels of abrasion and erosion resistance than tungsten carbide. The result is a cost-efficient, high performance product that wears significantly longer in both wet and dry low-impact applications, and demonstrates excellent corrosion resistance in both acids and caustic solutions.

Wear Resistance test results dramatically highlight the uncommon quality of Cerbide(TM). When compared to other available wear part materials including tungsten carbide, silicon carbide, and boron carbide, Cerbide(TM) consistently proved superior. In the test results summarized here, Cerbide(TM) out-lasted all other materials tested against it:

· Dry Erosion Resistance
Cerbide(TM) lasts 21 times longer than tungsten carbide and twice as long as boron carbide.

· Wet Erosion Resistance
Cerbide(TM) demonstrates 17 times better wear than cobalt-tungsten carbide, its closest competitor in this test.

· Dry Abrasion Resistance
Cerbide(TM) proves 3 times longer lasting than tungsten carbide.

· Wet Abrasion Resistance
Cerbide(TM) lasts 11 times longer than tungsten carbide.

"As an American company, we are committed to providing quality products to industries that demand high-performance materials", comments Ken Siddall, president of Cerbide, Inc. "We believe Cerbide(TM) will be the new standard for nozzles, valves, and numerous flow control applications."
