Coarseness of the abrasive mineral:

Commonly referred to as “grit”, this number designation is determined by the amount of abrasive mineral that can pass through a mesh screen with specific size openings. Therefore, a 40 grit abrasive particle will pass through a mesh screen that has 40 openings in one linear inch.
Consequently, the higher the “grit” number results in a finer abrasive and will produce a smoother surface finish. The lower the “grit” number results in a coarser abrasive that will remove material much faster.

How is fused alumina obtained?

Raw materials containing aluminium oxide are electrothermally melted at a reaction temperature of more than 2,000 °C to produce the various fused aluminas. Different starting materials are used depending on the desired type of fused alumina. For instance,

What is corundum?

Corundum is a mineral from the category of oxides and hydroxides and is the most frequently used industrial mineral worldwide. It also occurs naturally as a gemstone (sapphire, emerald, ruby). Chemically corundum is aluminium oxide with the chemical

What is the hardness?

Hardness is rated from A-Z with ‘A’ being the weakest bond and ‘Z’ being the strongest.  A weak bond is preferred for grinding harder materials while  a stronger bond is desired for softer materials.  A typical weak bond

What is a silane coating used for?

When functionalising fused alumina, a very thin layer of a silane adsorption group is applied to the fused alumina particles. This organic surface coating has the effect of better embedding and increased scratch resistance in a melamine resin

Type of glue required:

This decision is made by the type of abrasive you have selected or the type of process you will be performing. Glue – A straight animal hide glue that is used to adhere the abrasive particles to the

What is grit size?

Grit size typically runs from coarse (16 -24 grit), medium (36 – 60 grit) and fine (80-120 grit).  Superfine grits run from 150 and higher.  Grinding wheels usually will be between 24 and 100 grit.  Honing stones and

Is sample parts testing available?

MicroBlasting is extremely efficient and precise, so it is hardly likely you will need to recycle abrasive, but it is important to know the risk involved. Unlike grit or bead blasting, a MicroBlasting system can only cycle abrasive

What is your sample policy?

We can supply the sample if we have ready parts in stock, but the customers have to pay the sample cost and the courier cost. 

What is the specific surface?

The specific surface means the outer surface of a substance including all accessible pores in relation to the mass. It is determined using the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method.

How do i prevent moisture contamination in the abrasive?

Moisture contamination is the number one reason customers call Technical Support. Fortunately, it is usually preventable. There are 4 key ways to keep your abrasive free of moisture:1.Store abrasive properly and always make sure bottles are tightly closed
