The WG-700 from Greenleaf Corporation (Saegertown, PA) is a completely new whisker-reinforced ceramic insert and is the most sophisticated ceramic insert developed by Greenleaf. WG-700‘s substrate benefits from an optimized whisker load, which improves its crack- and wear-resistance while increasing its overall strength. Greenleaf’s new, proprietary “Platinum” nano-layered coating provides low-friction machining in both wet and dry environments, high temperature stability, abrasion resistance, oxidation resistance, and chemical inertness. The end result is an extremely strong, wear-resistant, mechanical-shock resistant ceramic grade that is capable of much higher metal-removal rates than any other whisker-reinforced ceramic insert.
