TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS FOR CUTTING & GRINDING - Norton Abrasives

To become steel, iron is melted and re-processed to reduce the carbon content and add other chemicals. This liquid is then continuously cast into long slabs or ingots. The ingots are heated in a soaking pit and hot rolled into slabs. The diagram below shows the grinding and cutting application stages involved in steel production: Hot grinding ...

Making the most of the daily grind

Abrasive choice depends on the material being cut. A zirconia alumina/ceramic aluminum oxide blend is the highest-performing abrasive for carbon steel, cast iron, stainless steel, and exotic metals. Choose a standard zirconia alumina as a medium-priced abrasive for carbon steel, stainless steel, and nonferrous metals.

Can You Use Flap Discs to Grind Aluminum? - Empire Abrasives

Using the wrong abrasives can easily ruin the surface of the aluminum. Because of its softness and low melting point, bits of abrasive grains from sandpaper, sanding discs, or even wire wheels can contaminate aluminum. You risk having rust spots (after-rust) eventually show up on the surface if you embed iron or carbon-based materials into it.

An embedded abrasive is a loose abrasive particle pressed into the surface of a specimen. With soft materials, abrasive particles can become embedded. Embedded abrasives can occur because of a small abrasive particle size, the grinding or polishing cloth used has a low resilience, or a lubricant with a low viscosity is used.

GRINDING TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY - ABRASIVE ENGINEERING

Abrasive Technically any material can be used to abrade another materials. For industrial application, however, abrasives are minerals from a select group of very hard minerals used to shape, finish, or polish other materials.In processes that grind, finish, polish, lap, or hone, abrasives are typically limited to synthetic minerals with the exception to diamond and garnet.
