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 jointing stones and other polishing abrasives will be 150 grit and higher.  Use a coarse grit for fast, aggressive stock removal and finer grits for less stock removal but better surface finish.

What is porosity?

Porosity is defined as the gas proportion (cavity volume) of a particle’s total volume. It can be determined using different measurement techniques, such as gas adsorption and mercury porosimetry. With the same grain size and shape, a lower

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

What is the d50 value?

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

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,

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,

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

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

What is mohs hardness?

Mohs hardness (according to Friedrich Mohs, 1773 – 1839) ascribes a relative hardness value to certain known minerals on a scale ranging from 1 (talc) to 10 (diamond). Accordingly, a mineral is considered harder than another if it

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 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. 

What is silicon carbide?

Silicon carbide is a chemical compound of silicon and carbon and belongs to the group of carbides. The chemical formula is SiC.Silicon carbide is at the same time the hardest and lightest ceramic material and is also highly
