Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2008
Los Angeles-based American Elements announced the consolidation of its production and sales of carbide materials, such as Boron Carbide, Cobalt Carbide, Chromium Carbide, Hafnium Carbide, Molybdenum Carbide, Niobium Carbide, Tantalum Carbide, Titanium Carbide, Vanadium Carbide and Zirconium Carbide.
Like diamond, a pure carbon compound, Carbide compounds tend to be extremely hard, refractory and resistant to wear, corrosion and heat, making them excellent candidates for coatings for drills and other tools. They often have other valuable properties in combination with toughness, such as electrical conductivity, low thermal expansion and abrasiveness.
Metallic carbide materials are marketed under the trade name AE Carbides™. The new production will affect deliveries beginning immediately.
