Bonded Abrasives are a mixture of abrasive gains, fillers, and bonding materials. The bonding agent can be vitreous; resin, rubber, shellac, epoxy, magnesite, and a range of bonding materials often referred to as a ‘plastic’. As the wheel spins against the surface of a work piece, the grains fracture and wear away. As the top layer wears, a new layer of grains is exposed and the wheel continues to shrink in diameter. Throughout the industry, many developments have been made using new types of abrasive grain and bond developments to increase the performance of the bonded abrasive product. Each product is designed to give a specific finish, speed of cutting, and stock removal or cutting requirements.
