- Resin bond and vitrified wheels
- Resin bond grinding wheels
- Vitrified wheels
- Electrolated products
CBN is typically 40 µm and larger in particle size and is available in an electroless nickel coating of 60% by weight. Electroless coated particles promote enhanced grinding wheel performance in terms of longevity due to improved heat removal from the grinding zone and increased abrasive adhesion in the bond system.
