Abrasive Grain Type
   Abrasive Grain 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. 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.  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 titania 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. 
   Ceramic (e.g., Norton SG®, Norton Quantum®)       Ceramic abrasives typically consist of aluminum oxide with or without additional modifiers produced using a sol-gel and sintering process. The ceramic processing route results in a hard, dense abrasive with an extremely fine crystal size and outstanding grinding performance on a variety of workpiece materials. Norton SG® and Norton Quantum® are examples of ceramic alumina grain manufactured by the Saint-Gobain Group. The alumina seeding process used in manufacturing Norton SG® abrasive grain produces a sub-micron crystal structure. The extremely fine crystal size results in superior performance.  
   Silicon Carbide       Silicon carbide (SiC) is a synthetic abrasive that was first developed in the late 1800s. It is harder than aluminum oxide, but more friable than grains of fused aluminum oxide. Typically, silicon carbide is used with nonferrous materials such as brass, aluminum, or titanium. The high solubility of carbon and silicon in iron would cause silicon carbide to react with an iron base alloy and result in poor grinding performance.  Levels and types of impurities distinguish the green and black forms of silicon carbide. SiC's sharp and easily fractured abrasive grains are used for abrading other non-metals such as the stone, glass, wood, and leather. Like diamond, silicon carbide is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures. 
   Superabrasive - Diamond       Synthetic diamond is produced synthetically in a high-temperature, high-pressure process anvil press. Diamond is a superabrasive grain with the highest known hardness and a cubic crystal structure. Diamond 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 and diamond readily dissolve or react with iron. Diamond pastes are useful in ferrous polishing or lapping applications where heat and reactivity are not a factor. Like silicon carbide (SiC), diamond is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures 
   Superabrasive - CBN       Cubic boron nitride (CBN) is a superabrasive grain with hardness second to diamond, and a cubic crystal structure. CBN provides superior grinding performance on carbon and alloy steel. CBN is produced synthetically in a high-temperature, high-pressure process anvil press; a process similar to synthetic diamond production. 
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary, or patented abrasive grain, grit, or abrasive material. 
   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.
   Combination       Sharpening stones or system consist of several different stone types or grades in the same product. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Grit Size
   Grit Size:       Applies to products using abrasive grains held in a matrix or bonded to a surface such as coated abrasives, MSL superabrasives, vitrified grinding wheels, dressing sticks, honing stones or grit dressers. Grit sizes are based on ANSI, FEPA, JIS or proprietary grading system standards. Grading system standards define a grit size through specified upper and lower limits at certain points in the size distribution. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Grading / Grit System:       
   Your choices are...         
   ANSI - Bonded       U.S. grading or grit size standards for abrasive grains used in bonded abrasives or grinding wheels. 
   FEPA - F       European grading or grit size standards for abrasive grains used in bonded abrasives or grinding wheels. 
   JIS       Japanese grading or grit size standards for abrasive grains. 
   Micron Graded       Very fine abrasive grain graded to micron size ranges usually based on an average particle size. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, proprietary, or specialized grading or grit system. 
   Search Logic:      Products with the selected attribute will be returned as matches. Leaving or selecting "No Preference" will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
