Abstract This paper is concerned with identifying the causes of grit size effects in the initial performance of fresh coated abrasives and the deterioration of coated abrasive performance with continued use. Abrasion tests were performed on an instrumented pin-on-cylinder apparatus which had removable segments for observing the coated abrasive surface in the scanning electron microscope (SEM). This allowed for a direct correlation between measurements of coated abrasive performance and SEM… CONTINUE READING
