Super Abrasives Glossary

  • Industrial superabrasives

    Abrasives manufactured using the world's hardest materials: diamond or cubic boron nitride. They are used to shape materials that are too hard or too fragile for conventional abrasives.

  • Tapered

    Tapered body wheels have a thicker cross-section at the bore, which becomes thinner or tapers toward the outer diameter.

  • Straight Cup

    Straight cups have a cup or bowl shape. They are referred to as "straight" because of their cylindrical configuration.

  • Flaring Cup

    Flaring cups have a cup or bowl shape,because their sides flare out.

  • Straight

    Straight wheels are grinding wheels that consist of abrasive grains bonded together by a matrix of resins, epoxy, rubber, metal, and vitrified glass materials. Straight wheels have a simple, flat, disc shape without any recesses, flaring or cups.

  • Cylinder

    Cylinder grinding wheels are those with flat circular ends and long straight.

  • Internal /Bores

    Internal grinding applications use smaller diameter wheels or other abrasive products for grinding or finishing the surface on a part's inner diameter.

  • Surface/Creep-feed

    Products are designed or suitable for Blanchard, surface, or creepfed grinding applications.

  • Toolroom/Sharpening

    Products are designed or suitable for toolroom, sharpening, or precision grinding applications.

  • Cutting-off

    Products are designed or suitable for cutting-off applications.

  • Woodworking

    Products are designed or suitable for woodworking applications.

  • Vitrified

    Products have a vitrified or glass bond system between the abrasive grains.

  • Resin

    Products have a resin or resinoid bond system between the abrasive grains.

  • Metal

    Products have an electroplated or brazed metal bond system between the abrasive grains, or between the grains in a metal substrate.

  • Electro-plated

    Products have an electro-plated bond system between the abrasive grains.

  • Needle File

    Medium sized Needle Files are the most popular files. Used for grinding different metals and hard materials such as: Tungsten carbide, steels of 40Hrc and harder, ceramic materials, glass etc.

  • Riffler File

    It is mainly used in internal grinding operations where access is difficult. Used by hand or in any reciprocating filing machine.

  • Machine File

    Machine Files are employed in applications where mechanical filing is required.

  • Rasps

    To file or scrape with a coarse file having sharp projections.

  • Bench Stone

    Bench stones are designed for expert knife sharpening and woodworking tool care.

  • Water Stone

    Water stone is a soft sharpening stone that is used with water. Water stones may require frequent resurfacing.

  • Honing Stick

    Honing sticks or honing tools are used for finishing internal bores. Special honing tool configurations are available for honing cylindrical surfaces (OD) or other specialized shapes.

  • Rubbing Brick

    Rubbing brick are natural or bonded abrasive products with a rectangular block or shaped stick configuration. Abrasive stones or sticks are used for sharpening or honing of edges, teeth or points of blades, drill bits, router bits or cutting tools.

  • Slip/Slip Stone

    Slips or slip stones are sharpening stones that are used to hone the inner radius of a cutting tool, chisel, or gouge.

  • Oil Soluble

    Lapping compound can solute in the oil.

  • Water Soluble

    Lapping compound can solute in the water.

  • Refractories

    Industrial ceramics manufactured from raw materials : alumina, zirconia, silicon carbide, etc. : designed to withstand extreme conditions of mechanical stress, temperature and chemical aggression.

  • Silicon carbide

    Synthetic material made from petroleum coke, sand and energy with an outstanding hardness, only superseded by diamond, cubic boron nitride and boron carbide.

  • Ceramic proppants

    beads used to boost the yield from oil and gas wells.

  • Thermal spray

    Acoating technique which melts and sprays material - ceramics, metals or plastics - onto a backing. This process results in excellent resistance to wear, heat and corrosion.

  • Molding

    Action which consists of introducing a cold material into heated a mold.

  • Specialty coated fabrics

    Fabrics which use different materials as woven fiberglass, coated or laminated with thermoplastic, foams or specialty films and with are designed for extreme environments. They offer remarkable physical properties.

  • Fibre glass

    Glass which has been extruded into extremely fine filaments. Glass filaments are treated with special binders and processed similar to textile fibers.

  • Acid-etched glass

    Satin-like, translucent glass manufactured by acid-etching one surface of the glass.
