We offer a comprehensive line of polishing slurries, with a range of particle sizes 1µm and coarser, using aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, diamond, and cerium oxide powders. Physical and chemical properties (abrasive particle size, crystal phase, purity, viscosity, pH) are tightly controlled to maximize product performance for each lapping and polishing application. Our line of polishing slurries covers a broad range of surfacing applications, such as ophthalmic, automotive, metal polishing, glass polishing, and plastic polishing. Looking for a polishing solution?  Please contact us through our REQUEST A QUOTE (RFQ) and/or CHAT for Tech Help. We have application engineering support exceeding 60 years of experience.  We will recommend products tailored to your specific application.

Typical Properties of our polishing slurries: Excellent dispersion properties Fast material removal rate Controlled surface finish Long life Low foam Easy to clean

Description

Lapping/Polishing

Roll Polishing

Aluminum Oxide and Diamond

  • Even scratch pattern
  • Durability for high-pressure applications

Metallography

Diamond and Silicon Carbide

  • Even construction for flat grinding
  • Tough bond formulated to reduce grain embedding and contamination
  • Aggressive stock removal for shorter grinding time and to help prevent relief
  • Even surface finish for shorter grinding time and shorter overall grinding time and less

Solid Surface and Engineered Stone

Silicon Carbide

  • Wet or dry sanding for smooth sanding and contours
  • Tightly graded abrasive prevents stray scratches
  • Aggressive cut for shorter sanding time
  • Even construction for consistent sanding
  • Tough adhesive to prevent shedding and grit embedding in softer materials like Corian

Automotive

Silicon Carbide

  • Wet or dry sanding for color and clear coat sanding
  • Tightly graded abrasive prevents stray scratches and leaves an even scratch pattern
  • Aggressive cut for shorter sanding time
  • Even construction for consistent sanding
  • Tough adhesive to prevent shedding

Woodworking

Silicon Carbide

  • Wet or dry sanding for smooth sanding and contours
  • Aggressive cut to reduce sanding time
  • Wet sanding for finishes, stains, and oil coats

Fiber Optic

Silicon Carbide, Diamond, and Silicon Dioxide

  • Silicon carbide for denubbing, epoxy removal, and coarse grinding
  • Diamond for coarse grinding and refining
    • Prevent unacceptable fiber height as it removes material and fiber at the same rate
    • Aggressive for ferrule geometry
    • Smooth finish to improve insertion loss and back reflection
  • Silicon dioxide for final finishing
    • Consistent undercut
    • No back reflection

LCD

Aluminum Oxide

  • Tightly monitored quality control to insure consistent thickness and performance

Ophthalmic

Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide

  • Tightly monitored quality control to ensure consistent thickness and performance
  • Durability for various pressure, speeds, and powers
  • For use on all materials including hard resin, polycarbonate, Trivex®, and Hi/Mid/Low Index Plastics

Ophthalmic

Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide

  • Tightly monitored quality control to ensure consistent thickness and performance
  • Durability for various pressure, speeds, and powers
  • For use on all materials including hard resin, polycarbonate, Trivex®, and Hi/Mid/Low Index Plastics

Fiberglass

Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide

Micromotor

Metal Finishing
