WA - White Aluminum Oxide
- Highly friable grain for fast, cool cutting. Good for light
grinding of all kinds of steels, particularly on tool and dies
- Refers to how rigid the bond holding the abrasive grain together
is. This is rated on a scale that follows the alphabet - the
further along in the alphabet you go, the harder the wheel. Harder
wheels have a slower cut rate, but longer life; while softer wheels
have a higher cut rate, but shorter work life.
- A wheel that is too hard for the application will not be able to
break down efficiently and load up quickly. If the wheel is too
soft for the application it will break down too quickly and not
last very long.
