What is the best way to store my abrasives?

The best way to have abrasive products retain maximum performance and work life is to store them properly. The bonding and backing materials used in abrasives are very sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. Abrasives are best stored at temperature levels of 60 to 80 degrees Farenheit and a 35 to 50 percent relative humidity. Products should be kept in their cartons until you are ready to use them. Cartons should be clear of any heat sources, cold walls, and off of damp floors.

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.

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

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 your terms of payment?

T/T 30% as deposit, and 70% before delivery. We’ll show you the photos of the products and packages .before you pay the balance.

How about your delivery time?

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 a mesh vs. Grit size?

If you take a (1) inch space and add wires to it, the number of openings within the 1″ space is defined as mesh. For example, if the 1″ space has ten openings for particles to fall through,

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 the structure?

Structure is basically the spacing between abrasive grains.  An open structure would be 12 or higher while a closer structure would be 6 or so.  Here again, the structure depends on a variety of factors not the least

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 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 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
