Carbide Grader Blades

Carbide grader blades are designed for high abrasion, low impact applications where maximum wear life is desired. These cutting edges consist of a tungsten carbide insert and overlay to increase the wear life of the blade serval times longer than conventional steel blades. These edges do come at a higher price than a steel edge; but when properly operated, the cost and time savings will give a great return on the investment.

Carbide Cutting Edges

Carbide blades look similar to standard steel grader blades, but they have a carbide insert brazed into the thickness of the edge and some offer an overlay along the bottom of the blade. Carbide is an effective way to increase the wear life of your blades and decrease the time and effort of changing blades. DMC Wear Parts offers our high-quality carbide grader blades with a variety of options. There are three main styles:

  • Double carbide curved blades with a top bevel, carbide insert, and carbide impregnation
  • Pick carbide inserts with a carbide overlay for wear resistance and face protection
  • Flat face carbide insert with carbide plate overlay for wear resistance and face protection

Benefits of Carbide Grader Blades

Carbide grader blades offer much better wear properties than conventional steel blades. That means operators have the following benefits:

  • Increased overall wear life several times more than heat-treated steel edges and carbon steel – which means great savings on overall blade purchases, lower shipping costs, and less space needed for storing edges.
  • Maintain a straighter cutting edge throughout the life of the blade and wear evenly – which reduces the “crowning” effect of steel edges.
  • Decreased time and effort used on changing blades – which reduces the costs of replacement part inventory, machine downtime, labor, maintenance time, and overall operations.

 

Customer Testimonial

“From an operators standpoint conditions are always changing and with the Borox blue steel you have the ability to adapt to different conditions by switching between different cutting-edge styles and thicknesses easily. From a shop foreman standpoint less down pressure to do the job means less wear and tear on the machine, which translates to savings in the long run!”
– Stuart | Road Foreman | North Dakota, USA

Uses & Applications

Carbide grader blades are an excellent cutting edge for low impact and high abrasion projects. The tungsten carbide abrasive resistant impregnation significantly extends the life of the blades when used in applications where the contact “face” receives the most wear. The curved double carbide blades also create better material flow on graders and plows. Carbide pick blades on the bottom of the edge can make ice penetration and snow removal simple and fast.

What is Carbide?

Carbide is a common shorthand to describe Tungsten Carbide; a metal composed of equal parts carbon and tungsten. Tungsten carbide is much denser than steel, enabling it to be used as a versatile and durable edge material.

Mounting & Installing

Mounting and installing carbide edges is a process similar to installing conventional steel blades. Thankfully, blades offered by DMC Wear Parts are designed for easy installation. Our carbide blades are available in 36” or 48” sections. Request a quote below and one of our sales experts will help you find the exact product for your needs.
