Our line of MB diamond micron powders are precisely produced from selected metal bond diamond and are recommended for resin bond (phenolic), vitrified bond and electroplated bond systems.

All MB micron products are recommended for polishing or lapping glass, PCD, ceramics finish grinding carbide steel combinations and for chamfer grinding PCD/PCBN especially the MB-M1B where surface finish quality is a critical factor.

MB-M1B

MB-M1B

MB-Micron

An enhanced blocky shaped metal bond micron that delivers a tightly controlled size, shape and surface properties. The presence of consistent uniform crystals makes the MB-M1B a superior micron product.

MB-M1

MB-M1

MB-Micron

A blocky shaped, tough metal bond micron with uniform particle distribution and tight oversize control, the MB-M1 is a sound choice when surface finish integrity is critical.

Resin Bond

systems are widely used for all-purpose superabrasive grinding applications in either phenolic or polyimide bonds. Resin bond systems can be utilized in either wet or dry grinding operations and offer excellent particle retention and part finish.

Vitrified Bond

systems are manufactured from ceramic materials that are strong, durable and brittle. Vitrified bonds are very effective in advanced grinding operations because of their ability to hold the abrasive and reduce heat generation in the grinding zone due to their high porosity levels when compared to other bond types.

Single Layer Bond

systems (electroplated and brazed) hold a single layer of superabrasive grains bonded to a precision machined form. Electroplated systems are bonded with a Nickel matrix and leave approximately 50% of the abrasive exposed while brazed systems leave approximately 80% of the abrasive exposed. Single layer bond systems typically do not require dressing.
