Metal Coatings

IDS offers a variety of high-consistency metal coatings compatible with most metal bond diamond, resin bond diamond, and cubic boron nitride grades.

These coatings help improve tool life and efficiency through a variety of mechanisms.

Nickel (30%, 56%, 60%)

Nickel coatings improve tool life and surface finish with increased particle adhesion and heat dissipation

  • N30 (30% nickel by weight)- Recommended for phenolic resin and polyimide bonds
  • N56 (56% nickel by weight)- Recommended for metal, phenolic resin, and polyimide bonds
  • N60 (60% nickel by weight)- Recommended for phenolic resin and polyimide bonds

Titanium (2%)

t2 titanium coatingT2 (2% Titanium)

A thin layer of titanium applied via CVD, specially designed for bonds containing cobalt, iron, and bronze. Titanium coating helps form a bridge between metal bond diamond and the bond system for improved particle retention and tool life.

  • T2 (2% titanium by weight)- Recommended for metal bonds containing cobalt, iron, and bronze

Copper (50%)

c50 copper coatingC50 (50% Copper)

Copper coatings improve both mechanical and chemical retention of diamond particles in resin bond systems and reduce heat build-up. Recommended for dry grinding applications.

  • C50 (50% copper by weight)- Recommended for phenolic resin and polyimide bonds
