A new matrix specially designed for soft and abrasive ground has just been introduced on the market by Canadian manufacturer, Fordia.
Specializing in the manufacturing of diamond tools and equipment for the diamond drilling and geotechnical industries, Fordia has just recently caused a buzz with the launch of the HERO 7 matrix in June 2009. Popularized by an outrageous marketing campaign and a comic strip featuring a driller becoming a hero, this core bit series has left its mark.
The company is already expanding this new series with the HERO 3. According to the manufacturer, this matrix has been designed to address soft and abrasive ground types, which are usually rated between 3.5 and 5.5 on Moh’s hardness scale. These rock formations are mostly comprised of sandstone, shale or limestone.
