Black, medium strength, with a blocky morphology and high thermal stability. The
CBN-300 is recommended in vitrified bonds and Nickel coated (60% by weight) in resin
bond grinding systems. The CBN-300's block morphology provides a more controlled
crystal fracture, allowing the tool to better maintain its form while generating
smaller particles under impact.
Dark brown, very high strength, with an angular morphology and very high thermal
stability; the CBN-400 is recommended in vitrified bonds and Nickel coated (60% by
weight) in resin bond grinding systems. The CBN-400’s tendency to macro-fracture
under impact loading, coupled with its very high thermal stability provides longer
wheel life. The CBN-400 produces lower power consumption that is critical in maintaining
work piece integrity for a variety of automotive and aerospace applications.
All cBN products are available Nickel coated 60% by weight. The textured Nickel coating
provides increased mechanical retention of the crystal in phenolic and polyimide
resin bond systems. The coating also dissipates heat from the grinding zone thereby
extending the life of the tool and increasing work piece integrity
Black, friable, with an irregular shaped morphology.
The CBN-100's semi blocky morphology produces controlled micro fracturing particles
along with free cutting characteristics to enhance wheel life and surface finish.
Cubic Boron Nitride (cBN) is second in hardness only to diamond. It exhibits a high
abrasion resistance and thermal conductivity when compared to conventional abrasives
such as Silicon Carbide and Aluminium Oxide. The thermal integrity of cBN and its
ability to maintain sharp cutting edges when machining ferrous materials make it
the product of choice in advanced grinding systems.
Black, medium strength, with an angular morphology and high thermal stability; the
CBN-200 is recommended uncoated in vitrified bonds and Nickel coated (60% by weight)
in resin bond grinding systems. The CBN-200’s angular morphology produces a free
cutting action that reduces heat generation and power consumption while increasing
Golden in colour, very high strength, with a blocky morphology and very high thermal
stability. The CBN500 is recommended in single layer bonds, vitrified bonds and Nickel
coated (60% by weight) in resin bond grinding systems. The CBN500’s micro-fracturing
characteristics, very high thermal integrity and very high fracture strength produce
an aggressive cutting action while retaining the crystal in the bond as long as possible.
