Our WSG saw grit line of metal bond crystalline diamond products is specifically engineered to satisfy all stone applications and construction industries, which are mainly used in a wide range of drilling, grinding and sawing applications of glass, stone, asphalt and concrete.

The bright yellow crystals are mostly cubo-octahedral shaped which distinguishes this arrangement from other products as it is characterized to have excellent thermal stability, high impact resistance and ideal particle breakdown integrity.

WSG Shape Distribution

Diamonds for sawing and drilling applications consist of bright yellow crystals that are primarily cubo-octahedral in shape and possess very high strength or toughness, high thermal stability and impact resistance.

WSG Friability Comparisons

The benefits of WWSA’s consistently high quality WSG product line include fast cutting action, dimensional accuracy and cost-effective performance.

Particle shape is carefully monitored to assure proper cutting action in each of the various sawing or drilling applications in all of the toughest to cut workpieces.

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.

Metal Bond

systems are the toughest formed bonds available and are recommended for wet grinding. Metal bonds exhibit high abrasive and heat resistance along with excellent form holding capabilities leading to extended tool life.

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.

WWSA offers a variety of metal coatings

to further enhance the ability of metal bond systems to chemically, as well as mechanically bond to the crystals. These include Titanium applied by both sputtering and CVD techniques, Titanium Nickel and Silicon coatings.
