Saint-Gobain Abrasives, the world’s leading manufacturer of abrasives, provides a complete portfolio of products that offer powerful, precise and user friendly solutions for every step of the abrasive process, enabling our customers to shape and surface-finish all types of materials even in the most complex and challenging applications, from DIY home improvement to highly technical precision engineering.
Sandpaper or ‘Coated Abrasives’
Manufactured using unique abrasive grains coated to paper, cloth, film, vulcanised fibre or synthetic backing, converted into different shapes such as belts, rolls, discs, sheets. For applications including heavy-to-medium material removal, fine finishing, and light blending and polishing.
Cutting-off & Grinding Wheels or ‘Bonded Abrasives’
Abrasive grains joined with an organic or vitrified bond molded into various shapes including grinding and cut-off wheels with or without reinforcements, segments, mounted points, dressing sticks and sharpening stones. Used for a variety of applications from cutting to rough and high precision grinding including cylindrical outer diameter and inner diameter grinding, dimensioning and sharpening.
Diamond Blades & Tools
For sawing, drilling and cutting building materials. Our unique Infiltrated High Density technology (i-HD™) combined with our patented diamond blade laser welding process is the biggest breakthrough in diamond tools this century providing our customers with unrivalled performance, increased safety, lower energy manufacturing and a wider choice of segment design.
An open web synthetic fibre and abrasive structure compressed into various shapes for stripping coatings, scale, rust, flashings and adhesives as well as surface de-burring and finishing applications. Our Clean Bond Technology enables easy surface blending and cleaning in fewer steps, improved surface finish and without smearing.
Grinding tools manufactured using diamond and cubic boron nitride (cBN) Super Abrasive materials. The unique properties and extreme hardness of diamond and cBN allow for exceptionally consistent and repeatable grinding output in industries where high precision is required; automotive engine, transmission and bearing components, high hardness cutting tools for machining and oil and gas exploration, semiconductor chips and other electronic devices, and automotive and architectural glass processing. Diamond truing & dressing tools generate precise forms on grinding wheels within a few microns.
