VITRIFIED (CERAMIC) BONDED ABRASIVE TOOLS
Vitrified (ceramic) bonded abrasive tools are one of the most popular solutions for precision grinding operations. ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES offers a wide range of ceramic grinding wheels dedicated to many applications in different industries. By using appropriately selected technical characteristics of tools, including abrasives with different properties, it is possible to optimally adapt our tools to the requirements of users.
The bond acts as a link between the individual abrasive grains. The durability of this connection translates directly into tool properties, including productivity, workpiece surface quality and safety.
An important element of vitrified bonds is the pores formed in the space between the abrasive grain and the bond. They allow the coolant to penetrate the contact zone between the tool and the workpiece surface, providing better cooling of the workpiece and easier chip evacuation, which has a significant impact on the life of the abrasive tool. Prevents sealing up of the active surface, resulting in increased tool life.
ANDRE tools with ceramic binder are characterized by high quality due to our many years of experience. Our team of technology specialists responds to the individual needs of end users by manufacturing abrasive tools with strictly designed physical and mechanical parameters dedicated to specific grinding operations.

At ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES, modern hard materials are used in the manufacture of ceramic bonded abrasive tools. The most commonly used abrasives are aluminium oxide and silicon carbide in various varieties.
95A - Normal aluminium oxide (brown)
97A - Semifriable aluminium oxide
99A - Friable aluminium oxide (white)
CrA - Chromium aluminium oxide (pink)
M - Monocrystalline aluminium oxide
ZrA - Zirconia aluminium oxide
99C - Green silicon carbide
98C- Black silicon carbide
X - Microcrystalline aluminium oxide
Abrasive tools by ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES are safe.
ANDRE gradually improves its technological process to offer abrasive tools with increasingly better usability and a high safety factor in accordance with the applicable standards. Membership in organizations of leading abrasive tool manufacturers and regular certification fully confirm that.
