Norton Abrasives has developed and launched Norton Vitrium3, bonded abrasives products engineered for maximum performance and cost savings in precision grinding, the company says. 

Norton Vitrium3 features a bond technology developed by the Saint-Gobain Abrasives R&D team that features excellent grain adhesion, resulting in improved product versatility across a range of applications, the company says. Substantial performance improvements with Norton Vitrium3 are now attainable in all Norton abrasive grains, from Norton Quantum ceramic alumina to conventional aluminum oxide. 

Norton Vitrium3 has three major features and benefits over standard vitrified bonds: A stronger bond construction, an improved holding power utilizing less bond-to-abrasive ratio; and an increased porosity that improves coolant flow and chip clearance to eliminate burn or other part damage, especially on tough-to-grind materials, such as high nickel alloys, tool steels and chrome.
