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.)
SKYWARD offers in its sales program three main categories of wheels:
STANDARD: for cutting non-ferrous metals of various hardness
ULTRA-THIN: for the cutting of non-ferrous metals of various hardness, where due to the internal stresses a high penetration index is needed as well as greater flexibility. The reduced thickness strongly attenuates the internal friction facilitating the cutting operations
REINFORCED: for the cutting of non-ferrous metals of various hardness where it is necessary to make numerous cuts in a short time without to make numerous cuts in a short time without sacrificing an excellent surface finish. Due to their structure, these wheels are also suitable for cutting samples with complex morphology where it is necessary to maintain the orthogonality between the surface and the axis
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.
