Service life of the drilling bits with diamond-hard-alloy cutters (DHC) is determined by value of drifting under conditions of abrasive, erosion and corrosion wear in drilling of degassing holes. Evaluation of wear and microstructure of a joint of diamond layer with hard-alloy substrate of «Syndrill» integral cutter of «Element Six» company (Ireland) and complex cutter (ISM of NASU) of drilling bits after completion of their life was carried out in the work. It is shown that cobalt in the integral cutters is uniformly distributed in the diamond layer and its amount makes up to 2.06 wt.% in contrast to complex ones, where amount of cobalt is 4.35 wt.%. Increase of cobalt content and decrease of volume content of the diamond grains in diamond layer of the complex cutters reduce their heat and wear resistance. Porosity of complex diamond-hard-alloy cutters is 2 times more in comparison with integral «Syndrill» cutters that promote penetration of larger amount of brazing alloy elements (cooper and zinc) in a transition zone of joint of hard-alloy substrate and diamond layer. 7 Ref., 2 Tables, 6 Figures.
