Type & Dimensions
   Non-woven Abrasives:       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive Filament       Abrasive-filament surface conditioning and finishing products consist of fine abrasive particles within or on the surface of a brush's bristles. 
   Belt       Abrasive belts consist of abrasive grain adhered onto the surface of a cloth, film, paper non-woven or other backing formed into a closed loop with an adhesive joint. Several different types of joints are used depending on the application such as butt, lap, skived, and interlocking joints. Abrasive belts are mounted on rotating wheels or pulleys and are used for surface finishing, sanding, grinding, etc. Abrasive machinery used ranges from small handheld equipment (portable belt sanders or file grinders) to very large wide belt sanding machines that use belts five feet wide. 
   Disc       Abrasive discs consist of abrasive grain adhered onto the surface of a cloth, film, paper, non-woven or other backing. Abrasive discs are used for surface finishing, sanding, grinding, etc. Abrasive discs typically have round shape, although specialized flower petal shapes are used for ophthalmic applications. 
   Flap Wheel       Flap wheels consist of a series of coated abrasive flaps radiating out from the center of the wheel where the flaps are bonded together.  Flap wheels continue to provide new abrasive surface as the flaps wear away.  
   Non-woven Wheel       A unified or convolute surface conditioning or deburring wheel fabricated from non-woven abrasive products. Nonwoven abrasives consist of abrasive grains adhered with resin to the internal fiber surfaces of a non-woven textile backing.

Abrasive Grain Type
   Abrasive Grain / Material Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum Oxide       Aluminum oxide is the most common industrial mineral in use today. Fused aluminum oxide is produced synthetically by melting bauxite and additive in an arc furnace to form a fused aluminum oxide ingots, which are later crushed and sized. Fused aluminum oxide is also produced synthetically by chemically purifying The various types of fused aluminum oxides are distinguished by the levels of chemical impurities remaining in the fused mineral. Titanium and chromium oxides are typical additives. Other techniques to make industrial abrasive start with treating bauxite ore with a sol gel process to create alumina that is sintered to produce with an extremely fine crystalline structure typical of the sol gel or Seeded Gel products available by Saint Gobain Abrasives. Fused aluminum oxide is available in several variations depending on composition and processing such as white (high purity), brown or regular (titanium oxide modified) and pink (chromium oxide additions). Titanium oxide additions can toughen the abrasive and enable heat treating process, which changes brown aluminum oxide to a blue colored grain as TiO2 precipitates form. Aluminum oxide abrasives are also produced with chemical precursors and precipitation, calcination and/or sintering processes. Calcined or platelet aluminas as used in fine grit or polishing applications.  Sol-gel aluminum oxide is produced in using chemical ceramic technology, but this abrasive has very high performance and is usually referred to as Ceramic abrasive grain to distinguish the grain from lower performing fused aluminum oxide.  Aluminum oxide occurs naturally in the form of the mineral corundum, but the mineral is not used as a commercial abrasive except as a component of emery. 
   Silicon Carbide       Silicon carbide is a synthetic abrasive first developed in the late 1800s.  SiC is harder than aluminum oxide, but more friable than fused aluminum oxide grains. Silicon carbide is typically applied to nonferrous applications (brass, aluminum, titanium).  The high solubility of carbon and silicon in iron would result in a reaction of silicon carbide with the iron base alloy and poor grinding performance.  Levels and types of impurities distinguish the green and black forms of silicon carbide. The sharp and easily fractured abrasive grains for abrading other non-metals such as the stone, glass, wood, and leather. SiC, like diamond, is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures. 
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary or patented abrasive grain, grit or abrasive material.
