Composite Rod

If you’re looking for superior grade composite rod, look no further than Cutting and Wear. Our composite rod range is considered to be the best in the industry. It certainly should be – we’ve been doing this for 40 years and have poured our experience and knowledge into creating it.

Our unique manufacturing process has evolved in line with innovation in tungsten carbide technology. The Cutting and Wear composite rod product range is backed by our ISO9000 quality system, providing you the assurance of using a quality product which meets the challenging demands that present down hole.

We offer a number of composite rod options and our dedicated team can help you decide which solution will work best for the job at hand.

SupaCutt Xtreme

  • Faster cutting & longer life
  • Steel cutting grades of tungsten carbide
  • Consistent and uniform pieces of tungsten carbide
  • Made for ease of application
  • Holds in gauge for longer
SupaCutt Xtreme the composite rod for superior downhole milling ability. Fragments of tungsten carbide are blocky with sharp edges and corners for long life and aggressive cutting performance. The tungsten carbide pieces hold gauge for longer downhole, therefore providing faster cutting & longer life.


  • Steel cutting grades of tungsten carbide
  • Sharp, angular and chunky fragments
  • Made with high tensile brazing alloy

SupaCutt is a composite rod used for cutting applications and manufactured from tungsten carbide to produce high quality angled fragment. Available in a range of sizes and blended to optimise the packing density when laid.


  • Ideal for stabilizers and other gauge protection products
  • Rounded pieces of tungsten carbide for optimal wear resistance
  • Consistent particle size for easy application
  • Reduces grinding time
SupaWear Composite Rod is used for wear applications and is manufactured from tungsten carbide processed to produce rounded fragments. It comes in a range of sizes and then blended to optimize packing density when laid.

StarCutt & Sharkstooth

  • Using our premium grade of tungsten carbide, CW6
  • Provides very sharp and aggressive cutting structures
  • Bespoke sintered WC formulated to maximise cutting profile

These high performance composite rods use our renowned StarCutt and Sharkstooth inserts providing you with sharp aggressive cutting edges and the robustness required on crucial areas of your milling tool.

SupaCutt Nickel Chrome Boron


  • Available as both standard and non-magnetic rods
  • Can be manufactured using our CW40 or CW60 grade sintered tungsten carbide, or crushed carbide held in a metal spray powder matrix
  • Ideal for cutting applications where non-magnetic properties are required
Our Nickel Chrome Boron composite rods are ideal when a cutting appliation is required on a non-magnetic tool or component. Manufactured using Ni-Cr-B-Si and Ni-Cu-Si-B and with options for different grades of sintered tungsten carbide these are the perfect fit for high corrosion resistant applications.
