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.

How is silicon carbide obtained?

Silicon carbide (SiC) is produced from coke and quartz sand applying the Acheson process in an electric resistance furnace. When petrol coke and quartz sand are grouped around a graphite electrode and heated to a temperature of 2,000°C,

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

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 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.

What is the d50 value?

The d50 indicates the mean particle size. d50 means that 50% of particles fall within the specified grain size.

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

Why is corundum or silicon carbide used?

Corundum is the most frequently used abrasive. The purer the corundum, the harder it also is, which can be determined from the colour. The toughness can be increased by adding various metal oxides and by shortening the cooling

What is the specification?

A typical grinding wheel specification consists of the grit type, the grit size, the hardness, the structure and the bond.  A typical grinding wheel specification would be A60-I10-VS.  ‘A’ is the grit type (aluminum oxide), ’60’ is the

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. 

How about your delivery time?

Generally, it will take 30 to 60 days after receiving your advance payment. The specific delivery time depends .on the items and the quantity of your order.

Form and shape of the abrasive:

This decision is made by determining how the abrasive will be used by the individual. Abrasives are sold in forms such as sheets, large/small discs, belts, and large/small rolls. Selecting the right form is determined by whether the
