MD-Piano™ is a fixed abrasive disc with resin bonded diamonds for plane and fine grinding of materials >150 HV and offers high, constant removal over its entire lifetime. It now features a new bar-pattern (on grit 80, 120 and 220) providing more uniform disc wear, and so extended, long lifetime compared to the former pattern. The ingenious new bar-design provides better support/flow of the specimens when they move across the surface, and thus optimum planeness. The bars prevent specimens from ‘stumbling across’ the individual pellets, and thus impedes premature wear. Contrary to competing products, MD-Piano is ready-to-use – no pre-dressing is required. Time-saving and convenient!
MD-Piano requires less operator intervention and produces a superior, more uniform scratch pattern. Edge rounding, over-grinding and other problems associated with SiC-Papers are virtually eliminated.
