Silicon Carbide Paper(SIC)

Brand:Silicon Carbide Paper(SIC)

Other Data:


The selection of specialized silicon carbide paper for metallographic specimen preparation, combined with the use of TOP TECH's metallographic grinding and polishing machine, is crucial for the metallographic specimen preparation process. This combination effectively eliminates surface deformations and damages on the samples, ensuring sample consistency and facilitating a faster and smoother subsequent specimen preparation process.

Silicon carbide papers typically possess unique abrasive particles and grain sizes, enabling efficient grinding and ensuring stability during the metallographic specimen preparation process. The use of these grinding papers effectively removes surface roughness and uneven layers from the samples while preserving the sample's shape and structure without causing damage.

The metallographic specimen preparation process become more efficient by using TOP TECH’s metallographic grinding and polishing machines, enabling quick grinding and polishing of samples to achieve the required surface smoothness and precision. This is crucial for ensuring sample consistency and improving specimen preparation efficiency, while also providing more accurate results for subsequent metallographic analysis.

文字方塊: Grinding paper selection
There are two types of SiC paper. One is ordinary SiC paper, and the other is water-resistant SiC paper. With the lubrication of water, water-resistant SiC paper can reduce grinding scratches, dust and make material surface more perfect.
There are various abrasive materials, such as white fused alumina, silicon carbide, brown fused alumina…and so on. The grinding papers generally used for metallographic are silicon carbide papers. Using SiC papers #240, #400, #600, #800 to grind the specimen gradually and orderly ensures that the specimen scratches can be removed. For soft metals, using finer SiC paper is required, before the subsequent polishing steps are implemented.
