The designations "YG8," "YG8X," and "YG8C" refer to different grades of tungsten carbide, each with its own specific composition and properties. Here's a comparison of these grades:

YG8 Grade:

Composition: YG8 grade tungsten carbide typically consists of 92% tungsten carbide (WC) and 8% cobalt (Co) binder.

Properties: YG8 grade offers good wear resistance, moderate hardness, and toughness. It is suitable for general-purpose machining of non-ferrous metals, wood, plastics, and cast iron.

Applications: YG8 grade is commonly used in cutting tools, drilling bits, woodworking tools, and wear parts where moderate wear resistance and toughness are required.

YG8X Grade:

Composition: YG8X grade tungsten carbide usually contains a slightly higher cobalt content compared to YG8, typically around 10% cobalt.

Properties: YG8X grade offers improved toughness and wear resistance compared to YG8. It provides better resistance to chipping and deformation, making it suitable for more demanding machining applications.

Applications: YG8X grade is used in cutting tools, drilling inserts, milling cutters, and wear parts requiring higher wear resistance and toughness, particularly in heavy-duty machining operations.

YG8C Grade:

Composition: YG8C grade tungsten carbide typically contains 94% tungsten carbide (WC) and 6% cobalt (Co) binder.

Properties: YG8C grade offers higher hardness and wear resistance compared to YG8 and YG8X. It provides excellent resistance to abrasive wear and is suitable for machining hard materials and abrasive workpieces.

Applications: YG8C grade is commonly used in cutting tools, inserts, grinding wheels, and wear parts for machining hardened steel, stainless steel, and other difficult-to-machine materials.

In summary, YG8, YG8X, and YG8C are all tungsten carbide grades with varying compositions and properties. YG8 offers good wear resistance and toughness for general-purpose machining, YG8X provides improved toughness and wear resistance for more demanding applications, and YG8C offers higher hardness and wear resistance for machining hard and abrasive materials. The choice of grade depends on the specific machining requirements, workpiece materials, and performance expectations.
