Technical Information of Abrasive Types:
A tough and durable man-made abrasive characterized by the long life and wear resistance of its cutting edges. It offers enormous penetrating strength, even at high speeds. Applications:
- Ferrous Metals
The hardest and sharpest of the manufactured abrasives. because of its extreme sharpness, the bluish-black abrasive grain permits fast stock removal and cool cut. Applications:
- Non Ferrous metals, i.e. Brass, Aluminum, and Bronze
- Non-metallics, i.e. glass, rubber, plastic, and stone
- Final finish on wood and stainless steel
- Abrasive planing particle board
- Cast iron
An ultra-tough synthetic abrasive which provides a free, cool cut for high stock removal applications. It's tougher, but sharper than aluminum oxide, with micro-crystalline structure which allows for controlled breakdown and self sharpening. This bluish-gray abrasive is available in coarse (24-120) grits only. Applications:
- Heavy duty snagging and grinding of all ferrous and non ferrous metals
- Abrasive planing of wood, plywood and particle board
- Grinding fiberglass, rubber, and plastics
Reddish brown in colour. This natural abrasive is medium hard and relatively sharp, but not as durable as man-made (synthetic) abrasives. Applications:
- For use on wood only
- Particularly good for soft sappy woods such as pine
- Produces an excellent finish
a dark grey round shaped grain which tends to polish rather than scrape or wear away a work surface. Applications:
- For polishing and cleaning metal only
Iron Oxide is very soft natural abrasive which is red in colour. Applications:
- For fine polishing soft metals such as gold
