PDC Drilling & Cutting
Metal Bond Diamond Powders Provide Outstanding Purity with Long-Lasting Performance
Saint-Gobain Surface Conditioning offers precision metal bond diamond powders designed exclusively for the manufacture of PDC (polycrystalline diamond compact) drill bit cutters used in oil and gas exploration. Our highly engineered metal bond micron diamond features very low levels of intrinsic and surface impurities, for consistent, reliable PDC cutters with long edge retention and long bit life in rigorous drilling environments.
We offer two high-purity monocrystalline diamond products that maximize drill bit performance in oil and gas applications.
- MBP (Metal Bond Premium) — Designed for all PDC cutter types, with sizes ranging from 0-.25 micron to 40-50 micron
- MBP2 — Saint-Gobain’s new product offers the same properties as MBP but with a slightly more blocky shape for higher packing density, in sizes ranging from 0-.25 micron to 40-50 micron
