Application Guidelines for both diamond and CBN abrasives
Diamond and CBN are both superabrasives designed to grind a variety of hardened materials. The following chart categorizes the major end uses for each abrasive.

Diamond

  • Carbide
  • Glass
  • Fiberglass
  • Plastics
  • Abrasives
  • Ceramics
  • Composites

CBN

  • High-speed tool steels
  • Die steel

Use CBN on ferrous material. Use Diamond on nonferrous material.
