Carbide Grade IG3 Advances Efficiency and Performance in Stainless Steels and Heat Resistant Alloys

Horn USA, a leading innovator in the cutting tool industry, proudly announces the debut of its latest in-house coating solutions, IG3. Designed to elevate efficiency and overall performance in some of the most common materials precision manufacturers face, IG3 represents a significant step forward in coating technologies for professionals in the precision manufacturing sector.

Efficiency Refined: IG3 when compared to previous generation offerings sets the new benchmark for tool life and machine time efficiency. IG3 offers similar performance to our previous standard, TH3, while in some instances increasing tool life beyond twice that of TH3. Making it a fantastic drop-in replacement in established processes.

Key Features of IG3:

  1. Improved thermal properties over previous generation coatings, maximizing productivity in stainless steel & heat resistant alloys.

  2. Improved edge adhesion on the sharpest of edge geometries

  3. Wide selection in-stock, ready for same day shipping.
