Telex Metals supplies high-quality hard metals—metallic carbides—which maintain their hardness, wear resistance and other mechanical properties, even at high temperatures. Hard metals are used extensively in cutting tools of many kinds including cutters for machining and bits for oil drilling.
In the construction industry, hard metals provide long-lived wear surfaces for ground-contact machinery such as excavators, bulldozers and trenchers subjected to the abrasive effects of earth and stone.
Similarly, in the mining industry the wear resistance of hard metals helps increase the useful life of equipment such as tunnel boring machines and pumps for abrasive slurries.
In oil and gas drilling equipment, hard metal seals provide longer life and lower friction than conventional O-ring seals.
Telex Metals provides tantalum carbide (TaC) and niobium carbide (NbC), which are intermediate additives for cemented carbide cutting tools. These additives provide significant improvements to the life and performance of the cutting tool and enhance tooling performance under extreme temperature conditions.
But Telex can be more than your supplier of these metals; we’re your strategic business partner built on integrity and driven by performance. From just-in-time delivery and inventory management to ensuring the security of supply to transparent settlements and spot market/prepaid options, Telex Metals works with your business for maximum cost-efficiencies.
