The Highest Quality Materials
We use the highest quality grades of carbon steel and tungsten carbide in our tire cutting knives, rubber conversion cutters, and processing blades. One of these high quality carbon steel alloys is CPM 10V steel. CPM 10V is one of the most wear resistant steels available and is often a viable replacement for tungsten carbide when cost is a factor. Click Here to learn more about CPM 10V steel.
If a carbide blade is better suited for your operation, then Carolina Knife Co. can manufacture if for you. Allow our engineers to assess the correct grade of carbide for your blade and help you determine if you need a solid carbide blade or if a carbide-tipped blade will be more economical for your business.
