Grinding & Polishing Discs Kemet

Fine grinding discs need diamond abrasive added during use. Because of their effectiveness in bringing diamonds in contact with the sample, they do neither require large amounts of diamonds nor any run-in time. With diamond suspensions you should dose about 0.5 ml/min on a 250 mm disc. Less on a 200 mm disc and more on a 300 mm disc.

Fine Grinding . We've all heard stories about fine grinding taking hundreds of hours. If done correctly, however, fine grinding takes a fraction of this time, and in fact, is one of the more manageable jobs in making a large mirror. Depending on your circumstances, about 2 hours of continuous work at each grade is usually sufficient. Fine
