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
HOW IT WORKS
PRECISION POLISHING OF OPTICAL COMPONENTS
A wide range of materials are used in the optics and photonics industry. Sapphire, zinc selenide, zinc sulfide, germanium, calcium fluoride, magnesium fluoride, silicon carbide, beryllium, yttrium-aluminum garnet, and gallium nitride, just to name a few. Precision polishing of the aforementioned materials are currently in high demand and will only continue to skyrocket. Having a reliable source or supplier of high-quality diamond slurry/powder used in lapping and precision polishing optical components is critical for the success and profitability of a service provider or manufacturer.
