Bond types for diamond and elbor tools
Various resinoid and vitrified bonds are used for the manufacture of diamond and cubic boron nitride tools.
The choice of bond directly affects the processing, since it determines the the wheel hardness, abrasion resistance, heat dissipation, removal of cuttings from the cutting zone, the possibility of self-sharpening during grinding.
Resinoid bonded wheels are used for solid alloy, nonmetal materials, high-speed and structural steels processing.
Vitrified bonded wheels are characterized by high cutting performance and its persistence during operation, high working profile durability that provides high precision, less heat generation, what contributes to high surface layer quality of workpieces.
