CBN Wheel is Industry Leading
How do you compete against the hardest material known to man? Easy: create an entirely new material that’s even harder than diamond. It’s often said that diamond is the hardest material available to work with in the grinding industry. However, modern science has created an even harder material that has innovated the grinding wheel industry. cBN named after its cubic form of boron nitride takes grinding ferrous materials to a new level. cBN has a superior thermal stability and chemical makeup than that of diamond, making it the ideal tool for the industry.
The thermal stability of CBN is fairly significant compared to that of diamond. At around 700 degrees Celsius, diamond suffers a massive loss of hardness whereas CBN goes unchanged at over 1,000 degrees Celsius.
A good example of when to use a CBN wheel rather than a Diamond wheel is when grinding hardened steel. Since diamond is pure carbon that is formed under pressure, it is not ideal for grinding steel. The high thermal temperatures that are caused while grinding cause the steel to take in the carbon atoms from the diamond wheel and result in eroding the diamond grit. cBN isn’t made up of carbon, (just boron and nitride) making it the ideal superabrasive for grinding steel, stellite and nickel based alloys.
