Polycrystalline Diamond Compound Water & Oil Soluble, diamond compounds are specifically formulated for metallographic sample preparation.
Compliments the use of oil as well as water for achieving more productive results and facilitating cleaning. Used where corrosion must be minimized but where oil cannot be tolerated
Polycrystalline diamond is best suited for lapping and polishing of both extremely hard and soft materials. Thanks to its unique characteristics, maximum material removal rates and superior surface quality are achieved. Polycrystalline diamond particles are ultra rough with three times the surface area of Monocrystalline particles.
Using Polycrystalline diamond paste – compound have advantages such as:
Ultra Fast Cutting:
- More cutting edges
- Faster stock removal rate
- Fewer polishing steps
Finest Surface Finishes are reached Polycrystalline diamond particles abrade a work piece uniformly regardless of orientation. They produce none of the random scratches and micro cracking sometimes caused by monocrystalline particles.
- Smoother finishes
- Fewer random scratches
- Less subsurface damage
Fewer Polishing Operations:
Polycrystalline particles are tough and equally strong in all directions. This permits the use of higher unit pressures for lapping and polishing, often reducing the number of steps required.
