Cemented carbide button is a kind of high hardness and high strength alloy material made of cemented carbide (WC) as the main raw material, plus other precious metals and bonding phase by powder metallurgy method of pressing and sintering.
Commonly used grades include YG4C, YG6, YG8, YG8C, YG11C, YG13C and YG15C, which have different applications.
The types of carbide button mainly include conical button, wedge button, coal cut-off button, road digging button, flat top button, sharp claw button, spoon button and mushroom button.
Cemented carbide buttons are widely used in mining and quarrying and cutting processes due to their high hardness, and can also be used in heavy excavator bits. They are also widely used in oilfield drilling and snow removal, snow plows or other equipment. Cemented carbide buttons are often used as coal mining drilling tools, mining machinery tools and road maintenance tools for snow removal and road cleaning. In addition, they are also used as drill accessories for heavy duty rock drills or deep hole drilling tools.
