Superabrasive powders are incorporated into specially formulated vehicles to meet specific polishing and superfinishing needs of industry.

A complete range of micron sizes are available, as well as light, medium, and heavy diamond concentrations.  Our supplier features three different carriers: water soluble which has a low melting point (very popular with metallographers), oil soluble (excellent for cutting and polishing carbide dies), and universal soluble (useful on high speed laps since it has no melting point).

Our supplier also carries compatible thinners/extenders.
