Industrial Tungsten Carbide Applications

Carbinite Metal Coatings offers customer-focused solutions for improving grip and reducing wear in various applications across many different industries.

  • In applications where slip or wear are an issue, Carbinite increases surface friction and surface hardness.
  • In applications that need an increase in the coefficient of friction, Carbinite’s textured coating can be applied from 36 to 280 grit Emery equivalence.
  • In applications where smooth or sliding surfaces are required, Carbinite’s wear coating can be applied as smooth as Ra 2.5 µm or Ra 98.43 µin.

Our Service

Carbinite Metal Coatings is dedicated to excellence in customer service. For most applications, customer fixtures are shipped to us and Carbinite is applied in our facility by our experienced technicians. Carbinite can be applied on-site for applications where shipping is not possible or feasible. Rush service is available at no extra cost.

The maximum processing time of orders under 100 square inches is three days.

Over the last three years, our average turnaround time for all orders is 1.34 business days.



Carbinite’s textured coatings increase the coefficient of friction, resulting in greater holding power for your workholding applications.

Primary Metals


Carbinite coatings are comprised of wear-resistant carbide alloys that increase grip to enhance mill performance.



Applying Carbinite’s non-slip textured coating to metal surfaces increases traction and can significantly reduce or eliminate the risk of slip-and-fall accidents.



Carbinite’s unique textured coating provides optimal grip for supercharger pulleys and chassis dyno drums.

Oil & Gas


Carbinite can be applied to a variety of tooling in the oil/gas industry to increase gripping power including hydrostatic testing jaws and other pipe/tube gripping equipment.

Materials Handling


Applying Carbinite’s textured coating to material handling equipment can reduce or eliminate slippage during transport and positioning operations.
