Product Name Notes
Cubic boron nitride is a synthetic crystalline material second only to diamond in Knoop hardness and although softer than diamond, CBN is superior in terms of abrasion resistance and oxidation...
Metal bond diamond is a synthetic material, grown slowly compared to resin bond diamond, resulting in monocrystalline structures with high toughness. The typical blocky crystals are suitable for resin, metal...
Metal bond premium diamond, MB-P is a high purity, metal bond, monocrystalline diamond powder exclusively designed for the manufacture of PDC (polycrsytalline diamond) inserts used in drilling bits for oil...
Metal bond saw grit diamond has extremely high strength, low metallic inclusions, excellent thermal stability and controlled shape. This diamond type is intended for use in tough cutting environments. Features:...
Natural diamond is crushed and processed from boart, an inferior diamond type unsuitable for gemology. This diamond tends to be free of inclusions and cracks, mechanically strong with high thermal...
Polycrystalline and UDD (ultra-detonated diamond) superabrasives are produced instantaneously in a controlled explosion known as shock synthesis. The resulting PC grains are extremely fine, typically <0.0254µm and are suitable for...
Resin bond diamond is a synthetic material with a friable crystal structure intended for use in vitrified and resin bond systems. Crystals are irregular, elongated, rough edged and are suitable...
Resin bond micron diamond is a synthetic material with a friable crystal structure intended for use in vitrified and resin bond systems. Crystals are irregular, elongated, rough edged and are...
