Cutting & dressing diamonds

Cutting & dressing diamonds

The Element Six CVDITE range is an ideal tool material for applications with high temperature operating conditions.

The Element Six polycrystalline CVD (chemical vapour deposition) diamond product range includes materials for cutting tools and dressing tools, as well as mechanical grades.

Cutting tools
The Element Six CVDITE range has a high resistance to abrasive wear, high thermal stability, and (since it is binder-free) is chemically inert. The high thermal conductivity of CVDITE makes it an ideal tool material for those applications where higher temperature operating conditions are seen, in particular, dry machining of metal matrix composites and high volume fraction glass fibre (or carbon) reinforced materials.

Dressing tools
Recommended for use in all general dressing and truing applications, CVDRESS CDD (dressing tools) is suited to all conventional dressing tool types, from single-point dressing for wheel profiling and blade dressing through to roller dressing, particularly on alumina and silica-based wheels. Due to its high strength and polycrystallinity, it is very resistant to chipping, a further advantage in controlling dressing consistency.

Mechanical
Our range of Element Six polycrystalline mechanical grade CVD diamond is used extensively for precision cutting tools, scalpels and wear components where extreme performance, enduring quality and consistency are prerequisites.
