Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN)

Euro Superabrasives Limited provides toolmakers with a choice of different Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) products to suit a wide range of applications.

CBN is the second hardest material after synthetic diamond and is synthesised from hexagonal boron nitride under conditions similar to those used to produce synthetic diamond from graphite. In particular, CBN’s properties of high thermal stability and chemical resistance make it suitable for machining ferrous materials, an area where synthetic diamond abrasives are not normally employed.
