CBN Wheels

Superabrasives is a term used to describe diamond and cbn (cubic boron nitride). Diamond may be the hardest naturally occurring substance on earth, however CBN, a man made material and much cheaper than natural diamond rivals the strength of diamond and keeps a cooler cut under intense heat conditions that are produced while working with difficult to grind materials (DTG). CBN Wheels also has an advantage over diamond due to its ability to grind ferrous materials. Unlike diamond, CBN is bonded together by boron instead of carbon atoms, so no reaction occurs, allowing for grinding ferrous materials.
