A superabrasive compact and a method of making the superabrasive compact are disclosed. A superabrasive compact may comprise a superabrasive volume and a substrate. The substrate may be attached to the superabrasive volume via an interface. The superabrasive volume may be formed by a plurality of polycrystalline superabrasive particles. The superabrasive particles may have nano or sub-micron scale surface texture.The surface texture is the result of treating the diamond or cBN particles in hydrogen or oxygen- containing atmoshere. The diamond or cBN particles are joined with the cemented tungsten carbide substrate by high pressure high temperature sintering.

A superabrasive compact and a method of making the superabrasive compact are disclosed. A method of making a superabrasive compact comprises steps of providing a plurality of superabrasive particles having a particle size distribution with a first ratio (d50)/(d50 principle particles) ranging from about 0.86 to about 0.92; providing a support to the plurality of superabrasive particles; and subjecting the support and the plurality of superabrasive particles to conditions of an elevated temperature and pressure suitable for producing the polycrystalline superabrasive compact.


Diamond bodies and methods of manufacture are disclosed. Diamond bodies are formed from at least a bimodal, alternatively a tri-modal or higher modal, feedstock having at least one fraction of modified diamond particles with a fine particle size (0.5-3.0 m) and at least one fraction of diamond particles with coarse particle size (15.0 to 30 m). During high pressurehigh temperature processing, fine particle sized, modified diamond particles in the first fraction preferentially fracture to smaller sizes while preserving the morphology of coarse particle sized diamond particles in the second fraction. Diamond bodies incorporating the two fractions have a microstructure including second fraction diamond particles dispersed in a continuous matrix of first fraction modified diamond particles and exhibit improved wear characteristics, particularly for wear associated with drilling of geological formations.
