Desirable Cross-hatch Angle
Types of Impregnation
S = sulphur
P = paraffin/oil
T = plastic
Y = sulphur and plastic
The softer the stick,
| - the harder the material
- the lower the pressure
- the higher the cutting performance
- the higher the stone wear and tear.
|Always begin with a soft stick and progress to the hardest
bond consistent with that which gives a consistently acceptable
||Sulphur impregnation has these advantages:
cooling, good cutting, self-lubricating, passive of cut material,
reduces pick-up. Sulphured sticks act harder, therefore select a softer
grade than when using unfilled sticks.
||Normal sticks - adhesive melts at around
80 ° C. The melting point of Sulphur is 119 ° C. If the bonding
temperature exceeds 10 ° C, there may be sulphur emission from
sulphured sticks, and the benefits will be lost. Ensure that the base
is clean and smooth when bonding.
||The Rt for super-finishing preparation
should be < 10 µ.
||Use a lower viscosity honing fluid when
honing hardened steel, grey cast iron and chrome.
||Always filter the fluid thoroughly.
||Ensure that Honing Tools are in good condition.
