PDC Leaching

PDC leaching at IDS is an affordable way to make your PDC products more resistant to the abrasive wear caused by hard rock drilling, wire drawing, and other demanding PDC applications.

Our leaching process chemically removes the cobalt catalyst from a PDC microstructure. The result is a cutter with improved resistance to thermal and abrasive wear and a longer useful life.
