Get a Grip with

Carbinite is a tungsten-carbide alloy that can be applied to most metals using a process called electrofusion, yielding a true metallurgical bond. This high bond strength far surpasses any spray-on coating currently available.

Carbinite increases both the surface friction and the surface hardness of workholding material, up to a surface hardness of 72Rc, benefitting applications where slip or wear are an issue.

In applications needing an increase in the coefficient of friction, Carbinite's textured coating can be applied from 36 to 280 grit Emery equivalence.

Where a smooth or sliding surface is required, Carbinite's wear coating can be applied as smooth as Ra 2.5 µm or Ra 98.43 µin.

carbinite is committed to excellence in customer service

√ Our maximum in-house processing time for orders under 100 square inches is 3 business days.

carbinite and work holding

Applying Carbinite to vise jaws, collets, and other workholding fixture applications helps eliminate slippage, allowing you to grip even the most tricky parts. With the added holding power of Carbinite-coated workholding, feed rates can be increased and cycle times reduced.
√ Carbinite improves collet grip by keying to the surface of material stock, increasing the safety margin of your work holding by eliminating pushback and collet slip.
√ Carbinite improves the pipe and tube fabrication process by optimizing the clamping surface for maximum grip, resulting in a reduction of deformed and scrapped material.

carbinite and safety

Carbinite has multiple safety applications in industrial and manufacturing facilities, public venues, and retail shops.
Carbinite’s Non-Slip Safety Flooring can be applied on-site to your existing aluminum or steel flooring. Additionally, Non-Slip Flooring can be supplied in sheet steel customized to meet your specific needs.

Applying Carbinite to Fork Lift Forks eliminates slippage of pallets, especially plastic pallets. This helps make your workplace safer for your employees and your materials. Can be applied in-house or on-site.
Carbinite’s Non-Slip Stair Treads add grip to increase safety on metal-edged stairs. Carbinite is a much better long-term solution than adhesive strips or grit paint for industrial facilities, stadiums, and amusement parks.

carbinite and automotive

Carbinite’s Textured Carbide enhances traction on Chassis Dynos, and reduces Supercharger Pulley slippage.

Carbinite’s Chassis Dyno Traction Enhancement improves traction, increasing the precision of your readings. On-site application reduces your downtime.
Coating your Supercharger Pulley with Carbinite reduces belt slip, increases boost, increases HP and torque, and eliminates the need for cogged conversion. Your existing pulley can be shipped to us for coating, or you can have a new pulley drop-shipped to us. Marine Pulleys (shown) can be Carbinite coated as well.

land speed racing

Carbinite Land Speed Racing is a five-year project with the end goal of being the fastest wheel-driven car on the planet at 500mph.

To Learn. To Serve. To Inspire.

The Carbinite LSR project is sponsored primarily by Carbinite Metal Coatings. Part of the project includes giving back to our community by presenting at local high schools, vo-tech schools, and colleges. Our vision is to inspire students to pursue careers in the STEM or Manufacturing fields.
