Glass Grinding Wheels
Typically our Glass Grinding Wheels are made to order. We recommend our diamond grinding wheels when working with glass, they offer precise clean cuts with an optimal life span. We use two types of bonds with our glass grinding wheels, metal and resin bonds. Metal bond wheels are typically selected because they are extremely resistant to the grinding fines that are produced while grinding glass and ceramics. These grinding fines can erode resin bond glass grinding wheels causing shorter wheel life. Metal bonds do not suffer this issue nearly as badly as resin bonds.
Why Diamond Grinding Wheels when cutting glass?
Diamond is the hardest material known to man and synthetic diamond is hardest man-made material. Due to their hardness, they are used for various grinding purposes. Every material is rated on Moh’s scale of hardness. The hardness is reference to the resistance of certain minerals to scratching. Moh’s scale uses ten minerals to determine hardness. Diamond is rated as 10 for hardness on the scale and glass is rated 5.5. So any material that is within the range of 5.5 to 10 can be used to cut glass. Since diamond is the hardest, it offers the longest life, precise clean cut and is very durable when grinding glass of all types.
Grinding glass is typically done under flood coolant to help the removal of the grinding swarf and to prevent the clogging of the wheel structure.
