Study on the Performance of CBN Abrasives with Ti Coatings


Article Preview

In this paper, the performances of CBN abrasives with and without Ti coatings and their changes during heat treatment were investigated under the same conditions. The results showed that the single particle compressive strength and the impact toughness for CBN abrasives with Ti coatings were lower than these of CBN abrasives without Ti coating. Ti coating on the surface of CBN abrasive particles oxidized and formed TiO2 with discontinuous structure at above 650°C during the firing process. The poor oxidation resistance of Ti coating and the discontinuous structure of its oxidation product could not protect CBN abrasives from heat damage, therefore could not improve properties of CBN abrasives.
