Choosing a Diamond Sharpening Wheel

A Diamond Sharpening wheel is an adequately new product among the sharpening wheels. It was manufactured after the discovery of synthetic diamonds. As of this date, synthetic diamonds are the hardest materials used for sharpening wheels. Adding the hardest material known, to a sharpening wheel, made it an ideal superabrasive for working with non-ferrous materials. Our Diamond sharpening wheels are made of synthetic diamonds, making them extremely durable and an increased life span.

A Diamond sharpening wheel is classified by the hardness of the wheel. The hardness of the wheel is based off on how the diamond grains are applied and how they will fracture. If the grains are designed to fracture easily the wheel is considered a soft bond. Hard bonds are used when the wheel will be applied with a large force. Surfaces that are typically easy to cut use a a soft wheel and for a finer surface finish and longer lasting wheel, hard wheels are used. 

Along with choosing the bond type, it is also important to consider the nature of the material. Diamond may be the hardest material to use as a superabrasive, but it reacts differently to certain materials such as steel. Due to its carbon make-up and the makeup of steel, grinding or sharpening causes the carbon atoms to detach and weaken the strength of the diamond sharpening wheel. If you are looking for a wheel to cut steel and other ferrous materials like it, check out our CBN wheels.
