Allied’s Green Silicon Carbide Grinding Stone

Allied’s green silicon carbide grinding stone is an abrasive material designed for fast cutting on non-ferrous metals, featuring hard, sharp and brittle grains that cut quickly.

This type of stone features an open or porous structure which facilitates efficient removal of swarf during grinding operations, as well as being machine balanced for vibration-free performance.

High Hardness

Grinding stones are one of the essential tools in manufacturing, used to smooth welds, grind and polish various parts of machinery, sharpen cutlery blades, and more. While there are various types of abrasives available on the market today, green silicon carbide stones hold a special place within this sector.

Black silicon carbide abrasive features higher hardness and brittleness than corundum artificial abrasives, making it suitable for processing metal and non-ferrous metal materials with low tensile strength, such as processing metal castings. Furthermore, its hard surface provides optimal grinding conditions on glass, stone, ceramics and refractory materials.

Comparative to aluminum oxide stones, these provide superior wear resistance and may last for longer. As such, they make for more cost-effective choices for professionals.

High Sharpness

Silicon carbide is one of the hardest and sharpest abrasive materials available, making it perfect for use when sanding metal and other high-tensile strength materials. Plus, its edge holds longer than most types of abrasives!

Green silicon carbide grinding stones feature an open or porous structure, helping reduce clogging. They may not be appropriate for use when it comes to rust removal from steel or hard alloys.

To protect against potential harm when handling stones and stones-like substances, it is imperative that proper protective gear such as glasses, gloves and dust masks be worn when working with these tools. As they produce small shards of material which could cause bodily injury if handled incorrectly; proper technique must also be utilized while handling these tools.

High Brittleness

Black silicon carbide is widely utilized for grinding and cutting tasks, including glass grinding and ceramic cutting as well as nonferrous metals like copper, brass and aluminum grinding and cutting. Furthermore, black silicon carbide can also be used to refinish wood flooring floors by grinding.

Aluminium oxide (AO), also known as carbide, is brittle and sharp, capable of being made into various shapes and sizes to suit a range of applications. Due to its hardness and brittleness, it makes an excellent material choice for machining metals, especially steel.

To maximize the lifespan of green silicon carbide, it is critical that proper usage be observed. This includes using appropriate safety gear and maintaining its condition.

Long Lifespan

Silicon carbide is an extremely durable material, suitable for heavy usage, making it the go-to material for sanding and grinding stone surfaces at an economical cost. Furthermore, this cost-effective abrasive is used as an excellent stone surface abrasive material.

Structure of silicon carbide abrasives depends on their intended use: an open or porous wheel is best suited for grinding softer materials while denser wheels with closer grains keep their sharp edge for grinding harder materials.

Silicon carbide (SiC) is an inorganic chemical compound composed of silicon and carbon. While naturally found as moissanite gem, more frequently it’s manufactured into powder or crystal form for use as an abrasive.

Sturdy Structure

Silicon carbide grinding stones can be used for various tasks, from removing glaze drips and smoothing warped pots, to leveling kiln shelf posts. Available in 60 to 1000 grit varieties, they must be gradually applied in order to produce optimal results and can even serve as an affordable yet moderately effective method of stone restoration.

Allied’s black silicon carbide grinding wheels are hard and brittle industrial abrasives made of silicon carbide material that are harder than aluminum oxide and typically used to grind materials with low tensile strength such as glass, ceramics, stone and refractories. Furthermore, rough grinding applications that require heat dissipation may benefit from using silicon carbide grinding wheels as well.

Bond Type

Grinding wheels contain abrasive grains held together by a substance known as a bond, and this in turn determines its performance and lifespan. Our wheels feature resinoid bonds for maximum lifespan and maximum performance.

An open or porous bond is effective at clearing away swarf, helping prevent your wheel from becoming clogged up, and is ideal for grinding soft materials. A tighter packed bond works better for harder materials as it keeps their grains sharp for longer.

Silicon carbide, commonly referred to as carborundum or SiC, is a hard, semiconducting chemical compound composed of carbon and silicon that was first produced commercially in 1893 for use as an abrasive. Naturally occurring as the mineral moissanite but more frequently produced synthetically.
