What are the different types of abrasive bonds used in coated abrasives?

Glue – A system where both coats are made of animal glue is used when the strength of the bond is not an important factor, such as with lightweight papers and materials.
Phenolic Resin – This system uses full phenolic resin for both coats. It is designed to withstand moisture and heat during application and is the most durable adhesion available.
Resin over Glue – A system where the make coat is animal glue, and the size coat is either urea or phenolic resin. It is used when more strength and heat resistance is necessary.
Urea Resin – Both coats are resin-based in this system. Urea resin withstands more frictional heat than normal glue adhesives, but not as much extreme heat as phenolic resin.

What is the grit type?

Grit type is either aluminum oxide (white, pink, ruby red, brown, grey, etc.) silicon carbide (black or green), ceramic (blue and pink) or any combination of these. Grit types are sometimes mixed in combination for achieving certain cutting characteristics. 

How do i know what abrasive is best for my application?

An abrasive’s shape, hardness, and particle size really determine the effectiveness of a MicroBlasting application. Each application is unique, and abrasive selection depends on the composition of the targeted part and the application’s desired result. See our Abrasive Media

What does the term “flow properties” mean?

The flow behaviour of powders depends on many factors. The following applies in general: Coarser, dry grain types flow easily, but the fine the grains get, the stronger is the impact of morphology and various adhesive forces on

What is melting vs. Sintering?

When processing minerals in a furnace, materials can either be melted or sintered.  When materials are melted during the production process the minerals go from a solid state, to a liquid state, then is re-solidified during the cooling process

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 does the form factor (grain shape) indicate?

The description of the grain shape can range from “angular” to “acicular” to “spherical”. When the value of the dimensionless form factor is 1, the grain is spherical. The smaller the form factor, the pointier the grain.

What’s lead time for bulk order?

1)for 5~25 tons, it takes around 10~15days. 2)For 26~200 tons,20-40days We will try to deliver it with the promise of quality guarantee as soon as possible

What is fepa and what does it do?

FEPA is the Federation of European Producers of Abrasives. Its mission is to develop and publish standards, documents and comprehensive safety instructions for the abrasive industry. Abrasive grain sizes are produced and sold according to the FEPA standard,

Amount of abrasive applied:

This decision is made by knowing the type of material you will be working with. Open Coat – Here, the abrasive granules cover from 50% – 70% of the backing and are set at pre-determined spacing to reduce

What is the specific weight?

The specific weight is the ratio of the weight of a body to its volume. The specific weight of corundum under normal conditions is 3.94 g/cm3.
