   Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive Grain / Powder       Abrasive grain or grit consists of smaller, sharp particles of hard materials, minerals, ceramics, carbides or fused oxides. Most abrasive grains or grits have crushed irregular shapes, but a few are available with regular rod or platelet shapes such as precipitated alumina or extruded sol-gel abrasives. Abrasive grains are typically sized or graded using a series of mesh sieves with specific percentage ranges for each screen depending on grit size. 
   Blank / Custom Wheel       Blank or custom wheels are designed for customization to a user's shape requirements. 
   Cutoff Wheel / Sectioning Blade       Cut-off wheels are thin, reinforced grinding wheel that are made usually with resin bond. They are usually ANSI type 41 or 42 products; however, some ANSI type 1 or 27 wheels are used for cut-off or cutting applications. Cut-off wheels are used for the quick and efficient sawing of metal bar stock or masonry products. They are also used for gate removal. Smaller wheels are made for portable power tools. Large diameter wheels are made for large floor or bench-mounted machines. Sectioning blades consist of very thin wheels for dicing wafers, metallographic samples, or other specialized applications. Both cut-off wheels and sectioning wheels use either conventional abrasive or superabrasive grain. 
   Diamond Tool / Dresser       Diamond tools or dressers are single-point or multigrit products for dressing, truing, scribing, indenting, and tracing. 
   Dish Wheel (12V9, 12A2, 4A2, 15V9)       Dish wheels have a dish or saucer shape, such as ANSI type 12 wheels. 
   Flaring Cup (11A2, 12A2, 11V9)       Flaring cups have a cup or bowl shape. Type 11 wheels are often called “flaring cups” because their sides flare out.  
   Hand Hone       Hand hones (diamond hones) are designed for offhand honing of ground cutting-tool edges. 
   Hand Pad       Hand pads are abrasive pads or blocks with an abrasive grain adhered to the surface of a cloth, film, paper, non-woven, or other backing. Most products have a die-cut square or rectangular shape; however, some hand pads have a round or contoured shape. Hand pads, blocks, or sticks are usually thicker than an abrasive sheet and have an integral loop or handle to help the user hold and apply the pad. 
   Honing Stick / Tool       Honing sticks or tools are used in the finishing of internal bores. 
   Mounted Point / Abrasive Burr       Mounted points or abrasive burrs are very small, bonded abrasive or superabrasive wheels with a round ball, point, cone, and cylinder or bullet shape. They mount on a pin or mandrel for portable die grinder and deburring applications. 
   Straight Wheel (1A1)       Straight wheels (1A1) are grinding wheels that consist of abrasive grains bonded together by a matrix of resins, epoxy, rubber, metal, and vitrified glass materials. Straight wheels have a simple, flat, disc shape without any recesses, flaring or cups. ANSI B74.2 Type 1 wheels fall under this group. 
   Ring / Disc Wheel (2A2)       Ring wheels have a donut or toroid shape. Ring or disc grinding wheels are mounted (bolted or cemented) to a backing plate that drives the wheel. Superabrasive type 2A2 wheels fall into this category.  
   Tapered Body Wheel (14A1, 3A1)       Tapered body wheels have a thicker cross-section at the bore, which becomes thinner or tapers toward the outer diameter. Superabrasive types 14A1and 3A1 wheels fall into this category. 
   Sheets / Rolls       Sheets are thin, wide products with an abrasive grain adhered to the surface of a cloth, film, paper, non-woven or other backing. Most sheets have a die-cut square or rectangular shape; however, some converted sheet products have a round or contoured shape. Rolls are long, rolled-up strips of coated abrasive with a cloth, film, paper, non-woven or other backing. 
   Straight Cup (6A2, 6A9, 9A1)       Straight cups have a cup or bowl shape. They are referred to as "straight" because of their cylindrical configuration. Types 6A2, 6A9, 6A2C and 9A1 are examples of straight cup superabrasive wheels. 
   Superabrasive Belt       Superabrasive belts have an 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. The type of joint used depends upon the application. Examples include butt, lap, skived, and interlocking joints.  Superabrasive belts are mounted on rotating wheels or pulleys and are used for surface finishing, sanding, grinding, etc. The machinery used ranges from small handheld equipment (e.g., portable belt sanders or file grinders) to very large wide belt sanding machines that use belts five feet wide. 
   Superabrasive Disc       Superabrasive discs consist of abrasive grain adhered onto the surface of a cloth, film, paper, non-woven or other backing. They are used for surface finishing, sanding, grinding, etc. Typically, superabrasive discs have a round shape; however, specialized flower petal shapes are used for ophthalmic applications. 
   Superabrasive File       Superabrasive files are bonded abrasive blocks or coated sheets that are adhered onto the surface of a rigid, rectangular-shaped support. These file may also have an integral handle. Superabrasive files include very narrow file belts for portable abrasive file grinders. 
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary, or patented abrasives or abrasive products.

Abrasive Grain Type
   Abrasive Grain / Material Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Diamond       Diamond is a superabrasive grain with the highest known hardness and a cubic crystal structure. It is used for grinding nonferrous metals, ceramics, glass, stone, and building materials. Diamond is not useful in grinding steel or ferrous alloys, however, because carbon or diamond readily dissolves or reacts with iron.  Diamond pastes are useful in ferrous polishing or lapping applications where heat and reactivity are not a factor. (Diamond is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures.) Synthetic diamond is produced synthetically in a high temperature, high pressure process anvil press.  
   Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN)       Cubic boron nitride (CBN) is a superabrasive grain with hardness second only to diamond and a cubic crystal structure. It is produced synthetically in a high temperature, high pressure process anvil press. The process is similar to that of synthetic diamond production. CBN provides superior grinding performance on carbon and alloy steel. Diamond is not useful in grinding steel or ferrous alloys because carbon or diamond readily dissolves or reacts with iron.   
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary or patented abrasive grain or material types. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Metal Clad?       Metal-clad abrasives have a metal layer or coating. Some superabrasive products use metal-clad grains to dissipate heat or enhance bonding. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
