CBN stands for cubic boron nitride. It is an abrasive material that rivals the hardness of diamond and out performs diamond in certain aspects. While diamond has held the spotlight for many years, as the industries superior choice of superabrasive, CBN Wheels are quickly taking over the throne for many reasons.
Applications of CBN Wheels
CBN is great for grinding most grade of steels, but they must have a hardness of 45Rc or above to be ground effectively with CBN. Stainless steels have been found to be ground effectively and profitable with CBN resin bond wheels. Unlike diamond, CBN wheels do not react to iron, so ferrous materials are not a problem when using CBN. You can check out all of our CBN wheels here.
