Optical Polishing

With a wide range of consistently high-quality and cost-effective grinding, lapping, and polishing abrasives, Advanced Abrasives Corporation is considered a top supplier to the precision optical polishing industry. Whether the need is for our standard off-the-shelf abrasive powders, slurries, suspensions, and compounds, or your need is for a product specially formulated to the exact requirements of your process, we are ready to help.

Abrasive Powders for Optical Polishing

Our abrasive powders are made up of high-purity, precisely sized, and shaped abrasive grains that are ideal for lapping and polishing optical components. We offer a range of abrasives, including diamond, cubic boron nitride (cBN), aluminum oxide, and silicon carbide, designed for optical polishing among a variety of products and needs.

Our diamond abrasives are a popular choice for optical polishing due to their extreme hardness, durability, and ability to achieve micron-level finishes. Work with diamond powders that come in a range of sizes, shapes, and coatings to suit your unique polishing requirements. Trust our premium line of diamond powders for the most demanding applications.

CBN abrasives offer similar benefits to diamond but are more suited for hard and ferrous materials due to their ability to withstand high temperatures and stresses. Our cBN powders come in various levels of friability and concentrations, and we can manufacture custom shapes and sizes upon request.

Aluminum oxide and silicon carbide abrasives are suitable for softer materials and perform excellent cutting and polishing. We offer a range of grit sizes and types of these abrasives to meet various application requirements, including more comprehensive precision glass needs. For this, we deliver grown (AG) and de-agglomerated (DA) aluminum oxide powders and suspensions, ensuring efficient productivity at any time.

Slurries and Suspensions for Optical Polishing

Our slurries and suspensions are specially formulated to provide a controlled rate of abrasive removal and optimal surface finishes. They are available in water-based or oil-based variants and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements for viscosity, pH, and abrasive concentration.

Our diamond and cBN slurries offer the highest level of polishing quality, with particle sizes ranging from sub-micron to several microns. The uniform size and distribution of our abrasive particles and advanced chemical compositions ensure consistency and efficiency in the polishing process. Advanced Abrasives Corporation’s slurries and suspensions are widely used in precision polishing applications, including precision optics and other vision-based needs.

Our aluminum oxide and silicon carbide slurries are a cost-effective alternative to diamond and CBN and offer excellent cutting and polishing performance on softer materials. They are available in a variety of grit sizes and concentrations that ensure quality performance during high-precision applications.

Compounds for Optical Polishing

Advanced Abrasives’ compounds are designed to provide an ultra-smooth surface finish on optical components, with minimal subsurface damage and high material removal rates. They are available in diamond and cBN variants and can be customized for optical industry needs. Diamond compounds are available in water-based or oil-based variants and come in different concentrations, sizes, and formulations. They are ideal for polishing and finishing sapphire, alumina, glass, and other hard materials. Our cBN compounds offer similar benefits to diamond but are more suited for ferrous materials such as steel and iron. We offer a range of cBN compounds suitable for honing and superfinishing applications.
