Product Description

Diamonds are ground into a powder using a process called micronization. In micronization, a special fluid or gas breaks down the solid diamonds into powdered form, and produces many tiny grains of the same size. The diamond particles are measured in microns. One micron is a millionth of a meter. Diamond powder is graded according to how coarse or fine the diamond particles are, and can measure from .25 microns to 50 microns. Both the size and the uniformity of the diamond particles are important for diamond powder super abrasives. If diamond powder has irregularly shaped diamond grains, it may scratch a material instead of polishing it.

Diamond super abrasive powder is used for materials like glass, ceramic tiles, and even gemstones, like rough diamonds. Diamond powder used for cutting or grinding is bonded to another material such as a drill or saw. You can cut accurate and precise holes in materials like glass, ceramic tiles, countertops, and metal with a diamond covered drill bit. When diamond powder is used for polishing, it is rubbed on the desired material with a cloth. Diamond powder can polish away scratches in your windshield, and restore a mirror shine to collectibles such as antique firearms, in addition to polishing diamonds and other gemstones.

Diamond powders are used to supercharge laps and are excellent for hard stones.
