Paladin’s new drilling-grade, carbide, conical Strata teeth are designed to withstand tough drilling conditions. All Strata series teeth use proprietary grade carbide developed specifically for vertical drilling applications. The specific grade of tungsten carbide uses a same-size, same-shape grain structure and is said to allow a very uniform pattern free of impurities. The company says most customers are seeing up to a 40-percent increase in linear drill footage production, as well as an increase in the life cycle of the teeth.
