  • Bonded Abrasives Basics
    The abrasive materials, ceramic alumina, zirconia alumina, aluminum oxide and silicon carbide, perform the cutting action. An ideal grinding abrasive has the ability to fracture before serious dulling occurs and offers maximum resistance to point wear. Each abrasive has special crystal structure
  • Fixed Abrasives Take Lapping Into Another Dimension
    Traditionally, the grinding. process known as. lapping has been. employed in stock removal of. metal and ceramic workpieces. to achieve a desired concentricity. or "fl atness." Flat. lapping typically involves. a slurry of loose aluminum. oxide, silicon carbide or other. abrasive grains fl owed
  • Fibers
    unchanged, and the composite has good colorability. Among the strongest materials are metal fibers formed by controlled solidification and cold drawing. Some nonmetallic fibers such as aluminum oxide and silicon carbide are nearly as strong as metal fibers but have a higher modulus of elasticity. Fibers
  • Grinding out Bottlenecks
    a slurry of loose aluminum. oxide, silicon carbide or other. abrasive grains flowed across a rotating. lapping plate in a water- or oilbased. solution. By creating an abrasive. "film" between the plates and the. workpiece, stock removal from a single. side, or both sides simultaneously,. can
  • Alumina
    Alumina or aluminum oxide (Al2O3) is a compound that consists of aluminum and oxygen. It is typically used in the alpha alumina structural form. In its pure form, alumina is a white ceramic material with high hardness. Fully dense alumina can be translucent. Alumina is used widely because of its
  • Application of WG-300
    with extremely strong, stiff, silicon-carbide crystals, commonly called whiskers. These whiskers are grown under carefully controlled conditions and, due to their high purity and lack of grain boundaries, approach the theoretical maximum strength obtainable. This strength is calculated to be in the order of 1
  • Safety Tips: Grinding Non-ferrous Metals on a Bench Grinder
    At Saint-Gobain Abrasives, we are often asked whether grinding non-ferrous metals on a bench grinder requires a special grinding wheel. We recommend that aluminum oxide wheels be used for grinding ferrous metals and silicon carbide wheels be used for grinding nonferrous metals. However, regardless
