Abrasives

Our Expertise

Alt_Text

As the world’s largest producer of fused aluminum oxide based products, we provide the right high-performance macro and micro-sized solutions for vitrified, resin-bonded and coated abrasives for all grinding, machining, blasting, cutting applications and for the production of refractory materials. Thanks to their wear resistance and thermal properties, these abrasives are widely used in the form of wheels or stones in the automotive, machinery, metal fabrication, electrical and electronics, building and construction industries.

A growing market

Abrasives are used extensively in a wide variety of end-user industries such as automotives, building and construction, electrical & electronical (E&E) and metal production. The global abrasives market spans all five regions of the globe, but Asia Pacific holds the lion’s share, driven by rising urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies such as China and India. The exponential growth of the E&E sector in these regions is also boosting growth of the abrasives market since these materials are increasingly being used in the production of memory disks, fiber optics and semi-conductors, amongst others.

We offer a wide range of fused aluminium oxides based products, macro- and micro-sized, for all kinds of coated abrasives, as well as the right abrasive for all types of grinding applications.
