Sustainability as an opportunity
Our metallographic cutting wheels as an eco-sustainable product
Taking advantage of the increasingly strict European regulations on the use of pollutants, after a long study and research work, we have practically zero the presence of formaldehyde inside our metallographic cutting wheels
This allows us to define our wheel “green” inserting it so, at the end of its use, in the category of special non-polluting waste and therefore not subject to specific analysis in the disposal phase involving, among other things, a reduction in the cost of removing product residues.
Another important aspect of this adaptation is obviously the elimination of formaldehyde also in the air during the production phase of cutting wheels, this to protect the environment and the health of operators
Metallographic cutting wheels containing the Aluminium Oxide (Al2O3) or Corundum as abrasive grain. It’s a synthetic mineral obtained from the fusion at very high temperatures of Bauxite.
For its ratio between hardness (9 on a Mhos scale) and wear/impact, the Aluminium Oxide is today the most suitable abrasive for cutting metal materials containing the element “iron” in a good percentage.
Skyward offers in its sales program three main categories of metallographic cutting wheels:
Metallographic cutting wheels containing silicon carbide (SiC), a synthetic mineral obtained by melting silica sand and Coke at very high temperatures.
Due to its high hardness (9.5 on the Mhos scale) and its fragility, silicon carbide is still today the most suitable abrasive for cutting non-ferrous materials (cast iron, bronze, aluminium, titanium, brass, copper, ceramic, glass, plastic, synthetic fibres, carbon fibre, etc.)
