Additional grinding-active layers
Improves cutting performance while reducing temperatures in the contact zone.
Prevents chip adhesion to avoid clogging up the abrasive. Also results in longer service life.
By avoiding electrostatic build-up, the dust created by grinding does not adhere to the machine or workpiece.
