Here at Fullerton, we have various types of coatings, but our FC1 coated tools are one of the strongest and durable types of cutting tools. Our FC1 coating is a layer of diamond that is bonded to the carbide tool. This coating requires special carbide grades. Because of this, the only standard tooling this coating can be added to is our MATRX line of tooling. The MATRX line is available in a low wear grade of carbide that works well in abrasive materials without coating and much better with a layer of FC1 added. We can also manufacture specials out of the special carbide grade that will take the FC1 coating. This coating works great in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP), Metal Matrix Composite (MMC), and other highly abrasive materials.
