Paper Title:
Characterization of ELID-Ground Granite Surfaces
  Abstract

In the present study, natural granites were ELID ground with metal-resin bonded diamond wheels on a lap-grinding machine to achieve smooth surface. The surface roughness during the grinding process and final glossiness were examined to describe the formation of finely finished granite surfaces. According to the detailed micro-observation of ground surfaces, it can be concluded that natural granite surface on the main mineral components can be smoothly finished with ELID lap grinding. However, the appearance of natural defects and residual fracture on the ground surface lead to the scattered surface roughness, and restrict the improvement of surface glossiness.
