Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ continual investment in R&D and close collaboration with customers generates performance-optimized solutions that deliver efficiency and productivity.
INNOVATIVE BOND TECHNOLOGY FOR PRECISION GRINDING
New generation, patent-pending bond technology features exclusive chemistries that deliver new grain adhesion science for maximum product versatility and operational productivity in precision grinding applications. This new revolutionary bond delivers a cool cut, precise profile and high speed.
An innovative, patented grain technology allows an engineered 3D grain spacing of interconnected voids of a structure that maximizes coolant permeability and chip clearance without use of chemical pore inducers. This design allows for increased profile holding, leading to higher metal removal rates, and friction reduction.
A SCIENCE TRIFECTA FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE PROFILE GRINDING
Three leading technologies (patented 3D-engineered grain spacing, latest generation high-performance ceramic abrasives, and our newest bond science) have formed the most free-cutting creepfeed wheels on the market.
EXTENDED LIFE BOND TECHNOLOGY FOR COST SAVINGS
A new bond technology is designed to cover extended range of cut-off applications (manual / swing frame or robotic) that improves wheel durability and heat-resistance for longer product life that generates up to 80% better G-ratios (material removal/wheel wear) with reduced cycle times.
LATEST GENERATION GRAIN TECHNOLOGY FOR CONTROLLED FRACTURING
A new ceramic alumina grain chemistry and shape developed from our patented Seeded-Gel (SG) technology multiplies the cutting efficiency by controlling the grain breakdown at the micrometric level to provide a perfect blend of sharpness (free cutting) and toughness (life) on low, medium, and high force applications.
POROUS METAL BOND FOR HIGHEST PERFORMANCE RATIOS
Latest innovation of porous metal bond system diamond wheels delivers extraordinary results grinding tungsten carbide and other tough materials such as ceramics.
COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR BETTER WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Highly innovative materials are leading the way into modern production of camshafts: carbon fiber cores are replacing steel and aluminum cores; they have the same strength as steel but are 70% lighter. The reduced weight and improved stiffness is ideal on large grinding wheels with multiple abrasive layers.
PROPRIETARY BLENDED TECHNOLOGY
A superior grain and bond technology that delivers unrivalled product life and speed of cut for grinding and cut-off wheels, flap discs and fiber discs that take right angle grinding to a new level of application performance.
ULTRA THIN DESIGN FOR MULTI-PURPOSE CUTTING
The very first ultra thin 1.0mm multipurpose wheel cuts precise, straight lines with ultra flexibility in every cut.
ONE WHEEL – CUTS, GRINDS, POLISHES
The very first ‘all in one’ cutting, grinding and polishing wheel.
A knock-out bushing design that enables diamond blades and grinding wheels to be adaptable to two different arbor machine mounts for ultimate machine accommodation.
CORDLESS DOESN’T MEAN POWERLESS
Developed for minimal resistance when in use, the free cutting nature of this wheel absorbs less energy from the machine battery and features a special bond and grain which gives improved user comfort and longer wheel life.
DUST-FREE TILE CUTTING
The patented dry cutting and dust free tile saw helps users save time on unnecessary drying prior to cutting.
ELLIPSOIDAL SHAPED GULLETS
Patented ellipsoidal gullets significantly increase user safety by decreasing the risk of cracking.
'BEST IN CLASS’ BURN-FREE GRINDING FOR HIGH PRODUCTION RATES
An engineered-shaped micron ceramic grain with the appearance of long cylinders with an aspect ratio (length to diameter) of 8 to 1 allows for a low packing density during manufacture which creates a naturally open structure for high porosity and superior permeability to coolant. The design also allows microfracturing in a controlled manner which results in long wheel life and lower power consumption at high metal removal rates.
Neighbourhoods, schools and hospitals are especially sensitive to noise with increasing local regulations preventing excessive noise levels. A unique diamond blade design features a patented steel core with unprecedented noise reductions of up to 15dB, 30 times less noise.
Infiltrated High Density technology (i-HD™) combined with patented laser-welded diamond blades is the biggest breakthrough in diamond tools this century. This revolutionary process provides unrivalled performance, increased safety, lower energy manufacturing and a wider choice of segment design.
Floor saws are equipped with anti-vibration handlebars which reduces hand/arm vibration by up to 40%.
DEPTH OF CUT INDICATOR
A permanent marking system with patented slots that combine the direction of rotation with depth that can be seen through the stroboscopic effect during cutting.
SMEAR FREE FINISHES
A patented resin bond technology within non-woven products that eliminates smearing and reduces rework.
A patent-pending multi-hole vacuum design of sanding discs that provides 30%+ improved productivity vs. conventional vacuum sanding and 60% vs. non-vacuum sanding. The multi-hole pattern accommodates all hole patterns as a universal design for cleaner sanding.
NEW GENERATION CERAMIC GRAINS
A ceramic alumina (Seeded Gel – SG) grain that cuts faster and lasts longer (up to 200%) than standard abrasives. The supersize layer and strong backing provides aggressive cutting action, maximum performance and advanced cooling.
ANTI-CLOG SURFACE TREATMENT
A special coating applied to sandpaper to help reduce loading/clogging of the product to extend the life and to provide improved sanding results with fewer product changes
BI-DIRECTIONAL BELT OPERATION
A design that connects a portable belt as one continuous piece of abrasive to machine size that allows the belt to be run in both directions for maximum use.
