Abrasive Tool Hardening / Diamond Cutting Tools

QPAC® polymers bind inorganic powders to metal and ceramic substrates in the manufacturing of a variety of abrasive tools and diamond cutting tools.

Key benefits:

  • Coat metal and diamond powders evenly to metal and ceramic materials.
  • Excellent as a flow aid
  • Ideal for granulation of fine powders
  • Decomposition is uniform and controlled, reducing the likelihood of cracks and voids in the final part
  • Suitable in all sintering atmospheres
  • Virtually no residue or contamination
  • Benign emissions, the products of combustions are carbon dioxide and water vapor, which are non-toxic, non-flammable, and environmentally safe
  • Decomposes completely between 220°C and 350°C, which can be as much as 100°C below the decomposition temperatures of other binders

Applications include:

  • Construction tools
  • Manufacture of cutting tools and grinding wheels
