SUPERHARD ABRASIVE TOOLS
Superhard abrasive tools by ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES, feature disproportionately higher performance than conventional grinding wheels. SUPERHARD tools use diamond or cubic boron nitride (CBN) abrasive grains to achieve the highest performance in grinding. Thanks to the use of appropriately selected technical characteristics, it is possible to prepare products with the highest parameters, meeting the expectations of even the most demanding users. ANDRE superhard abrasive tools are made in accordance with safety standard EN 13236 - Safety requirements for superhard abrasive tools.
Bonds - resin, ceramic or electroplated
SUPERHARD abrasive tools with diamond and cubic boron nitride (CBN) grains find their special use in precision grinding of
hard and hard-to-machine materials. The specificity of SUPERHARD results from both the high hardness of diamond and boron nitride and the bond used.
The characteristics of the binder used determine the properties of the tools, including their performance, ability to hold shape or influence the quality of the machined surface.
Resin bonds are characterized by efficient, cool and gentle grinding while removing as much material as possible. The ceramic bond increases the efficiency of grinding wheels - because, due to their structure, they better transfer coolant to the point of contact between the grinding wheel and the workpiece, and disperse the grinding residue. The electroplating bond allows for strong bonding while providing high exposure of abrasive grains. Grinding wheels with this bond are ideal for grinding with large allowances and where complex shapes are required (profile grinding wheels).
SUPERHARD tools from ANDRE, thanks to our many years of experience in the production of professional abrasive tools, are of high quality and safety in accordance with EN 13236. Our team of technology specialists responds to the individual needs of end users by manufacturing special application abrasive tools with strictly designed physical and mechanical parameters dedicated to specific grinding operations.

At ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES, modern hard abrasives are used in the production of SUPERHARD tools. Diamond and cubic boron nitride (CBN) grains are the hardest abrasives available and have a much higher hardness compared to traditional abrasives such as electro-corundum or silicon carbide. However due to their chemical properties diamond grains are used for machining different materials than CBN.
D - Diamond, (usually synthetic diamond)
B - CBN (cubic boron nitride), Borazone
Abrasive tools by ANDRE ABRASIVE ARTICLES are safe.
ANDRE is successively improving its technological process to offer abrasive tools that provide increasingly better utility values and a high safety factor, in accordance with current standards, for superhard tools, among others, EN 13236 - Safety requirements for superhard abrasive tools. Membership in organizations of leading abrasive tool manufacturers and regular certification fully confirm that.
