Engis says its Hyprez Five Star/US diamond compound is suitable for use in virtually all polishing applications. In particular, it is designed to produce high-luster finishes on molds. The compound combines the cutting characteristics of natural diamond with the durability of manufactured diamond to create an all-purpose, precision blend that is said to increase cutting speeds and lengthen service life.
The formulation, which has been engineered to withstand severe lapping conditions without loss of cutting quality, provides increased surface coverage and improves impregnation of lapping tools. It can be used with both oil- and water-soluble lubricants to meet specific material and surface finish requirements.
