Crystallume Black Widow Diamond Tools

Cutting Tools Chicago aka General Cutting Tools is proud to introduce Crystallume‘s Black Widow line of cutting tools for high performance machining of aluminum and other nonferrous material. These specially designed tools have been optimized to be coated with the Black Widow HCC-C-100 coating. HCC-C-100 is a coating containing a mixture of diamond and graphite.  Diamond is the hardest material known to man, while Graphite is much softer. crystallume_logoThese two materials are mixed together on the nanomolecular scale and therefore form a type of nano-phase amorphous material that offers high hardness and very low friction. This decreases built up edge (BUE) and extends tool life 2-3 times that of an uncoated tool.
