Needless to say, metals are everywhere in our everyday life. They include, but are not limited to, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, cast iron, titanium, cobalt based alloys, nickel-based alloys, aluminum-based alloys, and even advanced plastics. The global metal industry is ginormous and estimated at US$3.3 trillion.
THE ADVANTAGES OF QUAL DIAMOND SLURRY AND POWDER
Qual Diamond diamond particles are treated with proprietary surface chemistry. Specially formulated matrixes are crafted for different diamond slurries for different applications. Our ISO-compliant quality control procedures, which include stringent sizing protocols and elemental analyses, ensure tight diamond particle size distribution and high-level of diamond purity. These advantages translate into faster material removal rates, achievement of tight tolerances, consistent results, and cost savings.
● Non-agglomeration due to advanced surface treatment of diamond particles.
● Tight size distribution due to stringent sizing protocols.
● High-level of diamond purity due to stringent quality control.
● High material removal rate due to non-agglomeration of diamond particles.
● Specially formulated for precision polishing with pitch, plate, and pad.
● Eco-friendly formulation requires only water for cleaning procedures.
APPLICATIONS OF DIAMOND ABRASIVES
Metallography is often performed with the aid of sophisticated instruments such as optical microscope, electron microscope, and x-ray diffraction machine to detect critical material properties that are not visible to the naked eye. Polishing and lapping are the necessary steps in metallographic inspection. Defect-free surfaces of metallographic samples are necessary to provide accurate metallographic analyses. Diamond abrasives can be used in the entire lapping and polishing process but are commonly used in the final polishing steps to obtain a mirror-like finish. Chemical or electrochemical etching of the defect-free surfaces of the metallographic samples is then performed and subjected to microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and other characterization techniques.
