Aka-Piatto Diamond Grinding Discs
For materials with a hardness higher than 150 HV, the best possible choice is the Aka-Piatto. Aka-Piatto is a multi-layer diamond grinding disc that can replace at least 100 - 200 pieces of SiC Paper. It has a consistently high removal rate and will provide absolutely plane specimens with perfect edge retention.For plane grinding of soft materials with hardness below 150 HV or very ductile materials with a higher hardness Grinding Paper can still be the correct choice, but harder materials will greatly benefit from the Aka-Piatto. Depending on the size and the hardness of the samples, Aka-Piatto P80 – P320 is used for plane grinding.
