Leveraging our decades of experience in manipulating crystallite growth and agglomerate microstructure, Saint-Gobain Surface Conditioning has developed a line of hybrid alumina products that provide outstanding versatility in material removal rate and surface finish properties.
By carefully engineering the combination of crystallite size and microstructural development, our hybrid technology offers you a range of particle sizes that can be fine-tuned to the properties needed for optimal abrasive performance in your surface finishing application.
The hybrid line is offered in tightly controlled aqueous solutions containing particles from 0.15 to 4um and powder from 4 to 15um, covering the full range of applications from the most aggressive cutting to the glossiest finishes.
Saint-Gobain will recommend the best-performing hybrid alumina for your application requirements, working collaboratively with you to develop the ideal formulation for your process.
Saint-Gobain Surface Conditioning's hybrid alumina is engineered with the perfect combination of crystallite size and microstructural development for one-step polishing. The engineered particle provides great cutting behavior at the onset, diminishing under the application conditions to ultimately end with a great finish.
Saint-Gobain Surface Conditioning's High Removal Rate Abrasive (HRRA) Alumina particles are processed with a highly developed microstructure for more aggressive cutting action. Under the right conditions, the Perfect Cut particles can be stressed to break down and provide improved finish compared to other aggressive products.
Saint-Gobain Surface Conditioning's 9259 High Removal Rate Abrasive (HRRA) Alumina is the most aggressive in the hybrid series. The well-developed structure results in a highly strengthened particle, ideal for applications demanding an aggressive and long-lasting cut.
