Introducing Exote Material – Engineered for Challenging Conditions

Exote Material is a game-changer in demanding environments, offering unparalleled benefits for industries facing tough conditions. Here's why Exote Material stands out:

1.    Extended Service Life: In the toughest conditions, Exote Material boasts an impressive service life, up to 8 times longer than traditional rubber-ceramic alternatives. Compared to wear-resistant steel (AR500), Exote Material outlasts with up to 10-20 times the service life. Its performance rivals that of traditional tungsten carbide (WC-Co), ensuring durability that exceeds expectations.

2.    Exceptional Hardness: Crafted from titanium carbide grains, Exote Material sets a new standard in hardness, surpassing tungsten carbides by up to 20% and general wear ceramics by an impressive 50%. Its unmatched hardness ensures resilience against abrasive forces, prolonging equipment life and minimizing downtime.

3.    Optimized Sliding Properties: With a low friction coefficient, Exote Material offers optimum sliding properties, enhancing equipment performance and reducing wear. Its reduced adhesion to transferred media ensures smoother operation, contributing to increased efficiency in challenging working environments.

4.    Sustainable Manufacturing: Exote Material prioritizes environmental responsibility. Manufactured in Finland from western raw materials, it contains no critical raw materials, reducing dependency on scarce resources. Thanks to its unique manufacturing process and responsibly sourced materials, Exote Material boasts a significantly smaller carbon footprint – up to 50-90% smaller than tungsten carbide alternatives.
