PCD, or Polycrystalline Diamond is a synthetic diamond grain used for it's strength and resistance.
Diamond is one of the strongest materials on the planet. PCD tools make use of this strength to provide you with a sharper and more efficient cutting or abrasive edge.
PCD uses micron sized diamond particles which are sintered together at extreme temperatures with a metallic catalyst. The metal and PCD particles are then bonded on top of a layer of tungsten carbide.
PCD is a composite material with the resiliency of tungsten and the abrasive resistence and conductivity of diamond.
This makes PCD an effective, hardwearing and versatile cutting and drilling tool.
