ABRASIVES / SUPER-ABRASIVES

Abrasives

Standard toll processing materials are refined and processed for specialty abrasive requirements and applications. Many processes such as micro-finishing, polishing, lapping and turbo-abrasive machining require or benefit from discrete particle size distributions of abrasive grains and powders. Toll processing materials such as diamond, cubic boron nitride, boron carbide, alumina, garnet, and zirconia are routinely processed to customer specifications.

CHEMICALS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PIGMENTS)

Pigment Chemical

Chemical processing is performed to maintain top size control, intermediate distribution requirements, fine particle control or removal, or combinations of any of these criteria. Hammer milling, jet milling, air classification and screening are typical processes utilized to obtain desired products.

CERAMICS

Ceramic

Engineered and specialty ceramic materials are processed with equipment lined with abrasion resistant materials and components in high wear areas, thus minimizing contamination. Narrow particle size distribution products can be obtained through utilization of air classification equipment.

CARBON / GRAPHITE

Carbon / Graphite

Carbon and graphite material applications are becoming more diverse with particle size typically a primary consideration for optimum application or product performance. Whether as a filtering aid or as a carrier/catalyst, fine or coarse particle removal from a broad band particle size distribution can provide desired surface area or other material properties.
