To do this it is important to collect some useful data to identify or eventually create the right cutting wheel to get the best results; therefore we ask you to fill out the following form, thank you:
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.)
