Examples include cermets such as tungsten carbide, glass and minerals
CERMET’s are wear resistant and very tough materials. They are ideal for machining tools
The key to proper specimen preparation of CERMET materials such as tungsten carbide is to grind with a semi-fixed abrasive (polycrystalline diamond on a metal mesh cloth), followed by combining diamond abrasives with a CMP (chemical mechanical polishing) abrasive such as SIAMAT™ colloidal silica.
