Preparation of Microcrystalline CBN Abrasive


Article Preview

In this paper microcrystalline CBN abrasives are prepared with CBN powders and vitrified bond additives by pressureless sintering method. Mechanical properties of the products are measured by using single particle compressive strength tester and three-point bending strength tester. The effects of vitrified bond additives, the CBN powders particle size and the sintering temperature on the performance of microcrystalline CBN abrasives are investigated. The microstructure characteristics of microcrystalline CBN abrasives are examined. The results showed that the performance and microstructure of microcrystalline CBN abrasives are significantly influenced by particle size of CBN powder and the addition amount of vitrified bond.
