CBN Abrasive Tool
CBN abrasive products cover a wide range, from sandpaper sheets to grinding wheels and sanding belts. The common factor is that they all harness the power of Cubic Boron Nitride for abrasive purposes.
CBN abrasive sandpaper sheets are great for precision sanding, often used in applications where traditional abrasives fall short. They excel in grinding hard materials without losing their edge.
CBN abrasive wheels are like the heavy-duty champions of the grinding world. Whether you're sharpening tools or shaping metal, these wheels can handle the toughest jobs with precision and efficiency.
Sanding belts with CBN abrasives are designed for power sanders. They provide consistent and reliable performance, making them ideal for tasks like stock removal and finishing on hard materials.
Hard Material Machining: CBN abrasives excel in machining hard materials like hardened steels, cast irons, and superalloys.
High Temperature Stability: They maintain their hardness and cutting ability even at high temperatures, making them suitable for applications involving heat generation.
Longevity: CBN abrasives have a longer lifespan compared to conventional abrasives, reducing the frequency of tool changes and downtime.
Tool Sharpening: Used for sharpening cutting tools such as drills, turning tools, and milling cutters.
Grinding Hardened Steel: Ideal for precision grinding of hardened steel components in industries like automotive and aerospace.
Surface Grinding: Commonly employed in surface grinding applications where high precision and durability are crucial.
Bearings Manufacturing: CBN abrasives play a vital role in the production of high-precision bearings.
Tool and Die Making: Applied in the production of molds, dies, and other tooling requiring precision and wear resistance.
CBN abrasive products come in a range of grit sizes, allowing for different levels of material removal and surface finish. The grit size typically ranges from fine to coarse, similar to traditional abrasive products. Fine grit sizes are suitable for finishing and polishing, while coarser grits are effective for material removal and shaping.
It's important to choose the appropriate grit size based on the specific requirements of your application. Finer grits provide smoother finishes, while coarser grits are more aggressive in material removal.
Keep in mind that the optimal grit size may vary depending on the material being machined and the desired outcome. If you have a specific application in mind, I can provide more tailored information!

Q: What are the advantages of a flap wheel?
Advantages. The advantages of a flapwheel over a traditional disk are twofold: The separate flaps each attack the workpiece surface at a slightly different angle, and this varies slightly with tool angle. This avoids the common problem with flat sheets, where they produce repeated identical scratches.
Q: What is the difference between flap wheel and grinding wheel?
Flap discs are ideal for grinding, blending, finishing, and polishing surfaces, as well as removing rust, paint, and weld seams. Grinding discs are typically used for heavy-duty material removal, such as removing large welds, and shaping and smoothing metal edges.
Q: What is the best flap disc for grinding welds?
Flap discs are good for removing heavy weld seams and excess material while providing a long service life: For general use, the recommendation is a 60-grit ceramic flap disc. For greater speed and stock removal, a Type 29 conical is the best choice.
Q: What is a flap disc grinding wheel used for?
A flap disc is an abrasive product used to contour and shape metal. It consists of overlapping abrasive flaps glued to a backing plate and is regularly used for welding, machining, heavy-duty equipment work, and industrial maintenance. Common applications include: Cleaning flash from molds and castings.
Q: What is the best grit for flap discs?
Deburring and deflashing: 60 grit abrasive grain is ideal for deburring and deflashing work. Rust removal and blending: Abrasive grit in the more expansive range from 60 to 80 is optimal for finer work like rust removal and blending.
Q: Which grit flap disc would leave the smoothest finish on metal?
For finishing and sanding metal, a 120-grit flap disc could be your best option. Flat head flap discs best suit the purpose of finishing metal.
Q: What is the best flap wheel for stainless steel?
Designed for both mild and stainless steel, flap wheels made from zirconia (or zirconium) abrasive ribbon (blue / green in colour) are ideal for use on most metals including stainless steel. Other flap discs on the market made from using aluminium oxide abrasive ribbon are not suitable for use on stainless steel.
Q: Can you put a flap disc on a bench grinder?
Unmounted large flap wheels can conform to most shapes and are especially effective on pipes, tubes and other cylindrical items and are designed to be used on a bench grinder, pedestal grinder, or straight finishing tool with a 1 inch arbor.
