Silicon Carbide Abrasives

These abrasives have sharp, hard grains for fast cutting. Use in tumblers, flat laps, sphere machines or wherever coarse and fine grinding grits are need. The grit sequence below are standard, but can be varied depending on material and need. Standard sequence for rotary tumblers is 60/90, 220 and 600 silicon carbide, followed by a polish. For best results, use an aluminum oxide pre polish. For best results, use an aluminum oxide pre polish 800 frit before the final polish. Use this sam silicon carbide sequence including the aluminum oxide pre-polish., in vibaratory tumblers, and before proceeding to polishing with Vibra-Dry compounds. When lapping add the 400 and 1000 grits to the standard sequence.

Grit sizes actually indicate a range in particle size so that a sample of 220 grit, for example, may have particles ranging from 100 o 300 in size. The more a grit sample is graded or processed, the more the particles are similar in size, and the more expensive the sample becomes. This is the reason that the coarser grits are cheaper than highly refined polishes. MP< Grits are packaged in sturdy containers for convenient storage and use. Prevents leakage and contamination.

GRIT KITS FOR STONE

Kits are designed primarily for those just learning the fun of tumbling stones. The abrasives included will polish a variety of stones from soft to hard.

The KW-1 and KD-1 kits contain enough abrasices for approximately 8-10 loads for the MT-4 tumbler. You will have more loads for the KG-1 and less for the Raytech TV-5 and similiar tumblers. The KW-2 kit contains enough abrasives to do about 3-4 loads in tumblers with 8 to 10 pound barrels. The Vibra-Dry compounds can be re-used four or five times in most cases.

When using larger tumblers, especially with Vibra-Dry, it is more economiical to purchase grits in larger quantities, and in the grit sizes to fit your needs.

WET KITS FOR ROTARY OR VIBRATORY TUMBLERS

The KW-1 and KW-2 wet kits can be used in rotary and vibratory tumblers, and use water in each step. Kits contain the following:60/90, 220 and 600 silicon carbide grits, aluminum-oxide prepolish, Lusterite polish, ceramic media for filler, measuring cups, instructions.

Vibra-Dry

Vibra-Dry polishing compounds for gemstones are convenient, time saving and re-usable. Vibra-Dry is formulated to be used absolutely dry, just as it comes from the container. It eliminates messy slurries, gels and fillers. It's clean to use - simply separate stones and compound in seconds by screening. Replace compound in it's original container for the next usage. You save time, labor and compound.

Vibra-Dry compounds are formulated for pre-polishing and final polishing only. All material must be pre-finished through #600 Silicon Carbide grit before using Vibra-Dry. Gem materials below 6+ on the MOH scale of hardness usually require a special pre-polish in aluminum oxide pre-polish prior to finishing with dry polishing methods. If material is not properly prepared before using Vibra-Dry, results may not be satisfactory.

Vibra-Dry is not recommended for use in rotary or barrel type tumblers.






Guideline for Selecting Grit Sequence



( 3 to 7.5 MOH scale) Soft to Medium hard Materials, USE GRITS 600 - 2500 - 25000.

( 8 to 8.5 MOH scale) Hard Materials, USE GRITS 1700 - 14000

FILLERS FOR TUMBLING STONES AND METALS
