Foundry & Heavy Industry Grains for Bonded Abrasives
Superior Performance and Long Life
The extensive use of abrasives over the years has created a large variation in their physical and chemical composition, as well as their actual shape. Saint-Gobain Abrasive Grains' unique manufacturing technologies produce the sharpest and toughest grains for bonded abrasives, resulting in industry-leading performance in terms of stock removal, wheel life and grain quality. With a stable, secure supply from multiple manufacturing sites, these contaminant-free grains enable grinding media to remove stock as quickly and as cost effectively as possible.
Outperforming Commodity Abrasives
Saint-Gobain Abrasive Grains' best-in-class, highly engineered ceramic materials are hard, extremely tough, and last much longer and cut faster than traditional abrasives.
ZF/ZS Alundums for Bonded Abrasives
ZF 1525® is a dense and tough abrasive with a very fine crystal size. Crushed to produce a blocky shape with sharp edges, these grains are used in resin-bonded foundry-type grinding wheels, demonstrating remarkable life and removal properties. ZS 1526® also is a dense and tough abrasive with fine crystal size, but this maximum impact-resistant abrasive has an extra-blocky shape with a rounded, mulled edge, suitable for steel conditioning applications.
Norzon NV for Bonded Applications
Norzon NV® abrasives are 40% alumina-zirconia grains that demonstrate spectacular cutting ability because of their inherent strength and high resistance to dulling. Saint-Gobain’s unique manufacturing process makes Norzon NV one of the most durable materials in the abrasives industry, outperforming commodity abrasives like brown fused aluminum oxide and silicon carbide.
