Tyrolit has introduced a special Crystalline Stabilized Sintered (CSS) bond structure for grinding wheels in cylindrical and centerless grinding applications. The new bond's structure, which appears in microphotographs as fine crystal needles attached to abrasive grains, is applied to traditional aluminum oxide and ceramic aluminum oxide (e.g. sol gel alumina) to make Tyrolit's new CSS-Basic and CSS-Matrix product lines respectively. Field tests with the new abrasive system report process costs down 30% through reduced grinding time, lower dressing frequency, better accuracy and improved process stability. A similar product line called Columbia has been designed for internal grinding wheels.
