Superdurable Material Developed
Shale gas production

Russian researchers have developed a new superdurable material on the basis of impact diamonds, found at the Popigayskoe site. This material can be used for making cutting inserts into drilling crowns, which are important for shale gas production.

      Scientists from the Instute of Geology and Mineralogy have made sinters from nanocomposite materials by 8 GPa pressure and 1600-1800 degrees Centigrade. The resulting sticks can be used for making cutting instruments, dresser members, cutters for durable alloys and curring inserts into drilling crowns.

      Tests have showed that the new material is 20-53 times more durable than synthetic diamonds and mixtures of the latter with durable alloys. Cutters made of new materials can cut up to 140 meters per minute.
