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 is the superior composite rod for downhole milling ability. Steel cutting grade 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 is manufactured from steel cutting grade tungsten carbide to produce high quality angled fragments. 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 application is required on a non-magnetic tool or component. These highly versatile composite rods can be manufactured for both cutting application using steel cutting grade crushed carbide, as well as wear protection, using our CW40 or CW60 grade wear protection inserts. Fully non-magnetic grade composite rods are available held in a matrix of our K20NM metal spray powder. Composite rods for cutting applications can be manufactured using Zinc free Ni-Cu-Si-B matrix.
