LEARN ABOUT OUR MATERIALS
The biggest concern with pattern welded metals is delaminations. A delamination is where the weld between the metals did not work.
Balbachdamast’s patented DSC® Superclean process produces fault-free damascus materials that are guaranteed.
DSC® INOX / INOX-S
DSC® Inox is a stainless martensitic damascus steel produced using the traditional fire-welding process and is ideally suited for industrial production use.
DSC® Titan is the ideal material for high-quality products from numerous industries due to its corrosion resistance, high strength, lightweight, and the variety of damascus patterns.
DSC® Zitan is the ideal material for high-quality products from numerous industries due to its corrosion resistance, high strength, light weight and the variety of damascus patterns.
DSC® Carbon is a non-stainless Damascus, which is made of two proven performance steels in the fire-welding method and usually consists of 160 layers.
