All commercialised components are made with our own, patented materials. We deliver near-net-shape, hardened components with grinding add-on upon chosen surfaces. Their properties are unique and they are manufactured through a specific 3D-printing process developed in-house. Vibenite® materials have exceptional wear resistance, as you can see in our Application notes (order below), and are pore free. To receive datasheets with more specifications, please order below.
- Vibenite® 350 – Corrosion resistant, but still with rather high wear resistance and toughness. Hardness of ∼60 HRC (680-700 HV). High chromium content. (Fe/Cr-based)
- Vibenite® 150 – Multipurpose material, hardness range from 55-63 HRC (600-780 HV). (Fe-based)
- Vibenite® 280 – For cutting in other metals, also suitable for other wear applications. Hardness range from 63 to 70 HRC (780-1000 HV). (Fe-based)
- Vibenite® 290 – The hardest commercially-available steel type in the world, launched in November 2017. Hardness range of 68-72 HRC (940-1100 HV). Perfect for cutting in other metals and other high wear applications. (Fe-based)
- Vibenite® 480 – Hybrid carbide (cemented carbide/hard metal), released in December 2018. Hardness of ∼66 HRC (860–870 HV), carbide content of ∼65%, long-term heat resistance of 750°C, corrosion resistant, magnetic. Recommended where high-speed steels are not heat-resistant enough and where cemented carbides are too brittle or need complex shapes. For extreme wear applications, especially with demands of high heat resistance. (Co-based)
The steels, Fe- and Fe/Cr-based, are hardened after production and can also be soft annealed. Note that Co-based materials do not need hardening.
