Resin Bond diamond is recommended for phenolic, polyimide and vitrified bond systems.
It's unique fracturing characteristic produces a free cutting action that provides
optimal performance when machining nonferrous materials such as tungsten carbide,
glass and a variety of ceramics. Resin bond diamond clad with a metallic coating
such as Nickel or Copper may provide additional tool life, as the metal coating improves
heat dissipation and the improved surface texture enhances particle retention in
Highest friability resin bond diamond particles with a crystal structure that promotes
microfracturing. Effective for high precision grinding applications where surface
finish and form retention are critical factors.
Economy grade semi-blocky resin bond diamond that is slightly more friable than a
standard resin bond diamond. RBD-100's increased friability, coupled with its free
cutting action, provides solid performance where cost is a key factor.
Standard grade blocky resin bond diamond that requires more force per grain than
the RBD-100 to generate new cutting edges. This medium friability crystal demonstrates
an ability to self sharpen which produces a free cutting action that is critical
in maintaining the balance between tool life and grinding performance.
Premium grade blocky resin bond diamond that is the least friable in our family
of resin bond diamond products. Controlled micro-fracturing produces a free cutting
action while requiring more force per grain to generate new cutting edges vs. the
RBD-150. The RBD-200 is the optimal crystal for achieving high material removal rates
with minimal power consumption and extending tool life.
Product Options - N30 (30% by weight) N56 (56% by weight)
C50 (50% by weight)
Electroless Coatings are widely used to enhance the mechanical
retention of the diamond in resin bond systems. The durable bond between the Nickel
or Copper and the crystal provides excellent heat dissipation and increased particle
retention in the bond system, thus improving wheel life and workpiece integrity.
