Resin Bond - Aluminum Oxide, Hardness Grade L

Grade L mounted points consist of a mix of white and dark red aluminum oxide in a high-quality resin bond. Hardness grade L is considered a fairly soft bond achieving very good removal rates.

Advantages:

  • Hardness grade L tools are ideal for general use on stainless steel surfaces. This hardness grade ensures high abrasive rates and a high stock removal capability.
  • Naturally a high stock removal rate reduces grinding time and labour costs.
  • Cost reductions are achieved despite increased tool consumption, since the reduction in labour costs more than compensates tool costs.
  • Cool grinding properties reduce the thermal load on the workpiece.

Hardness grade L mounted points perform best at a recommended peripheral speed of 6,900 - 9,800 SFPM in surface grinding applications. Suitable drive systems include flexible shafts and electric or air-powered straight grinders.
