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 of which is how difficult the material is to grind.

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 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

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

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 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.

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 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 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 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,

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 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

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. 

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
