Cutting solutions for tough environments

New MasterGrade™ GH bit

Our new MasterGrade™ GH road milling bit is specially designed for tough conditions where body wash is a problem. 

Utilising our proprietary 'Nano-technology' to enhance the cobalt binder matrix, the GH bit offers a larger tip designed to protect the body, resulting in reduced body wear, longer tool life and increased operating efficiency.
