Investigation on 4-Body Finishing Technology with Polishing Paste
A new concept of finishing technology, Multi-Body Finishing (MBF), is proposed to broaden the concept of Polymer Particles Assisted Polishing (POPAP, named also as 4-body finishing). In this paper, a new 4-body finishing technology is developed, in which paste dispersion medium is used and fine polymer particles are introduced as the 4th body to extinguish the microscratches and improve the dispersion stability of the polishing paste. It is verified that both high removal rate and high dispersion stability, compared to the conventional paste, can be obtained by using the new paste in which the low viscosity base agent is used and the media particles considerably finer than the abrasives are added.
