Diamond Suspension

Low viscosity, high concentration, oil based suspensions available in monocrystalline (Type OM) and polycrystalline (Type OP).

Aquapol is the next generation of water based diamond suspensions for sample preparation. Available in monocrystalline (Aquapol-M) and polycrystalline (Aquapol-P). Aquapol is easy to clean and non-foaming.

  • Uniform suspension of diamond particles
  • No agitation required
  • Suitable for dispensing by Kemet Electronic Dispenser or alternative systems
  • ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC*)
  • Colour coded for easy identification

Available in 400g bottles with trigger spray. Other sizes (500ml, 1 litre, 2.5 litres etc.) are available upon request.

ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) - not classified as an atmospheric pollutant and offer health and safety benefits. VOCs are organic chemicals that have a high vapour pressure at ordinary room temperature, some of which can be dangerous to human health and/or cause harm to the environment.

Type KM Liquid Diamond

KM liquid diamond is a low viscosity oil/water emulsion suitable for most applications aimed at the metallographic market. zero voc

The new formula has the following advantages:

  • Lower viscosity to give better stock removal
  • Less inclusion pullout
  • Spreads better over the polishing cloth
  • Parts are easier to clean after polishing
  • Stable emulsion which does not separate
  • Diamond stays much longer in suspension
  • ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC*) - not classified as an atmospheric pollutant and offer health and safety benefits.

Kemix – Diamond Suspension and Lubricant Combination

Kemix is a diamond suspension and lubricant combination, resulting in faster and cheaper metallographic sample preparation. Kemix suspensions result in very high stock removal, allowing preparation time to be reduced. The diamond suspension / lubricant combination ensures that the optimum ratio of diamonds and lubricant is predetermined, resulting in a quality polishing operation, first time and every time. Kemix Mono is a monocrystalline diamond suspension and lubricant combination.

  • Lower cost of consumables
  • Reduction in preparation time
  • Excellent and reproducible results
  • Easy to use
  • Water based
  • Easy to clean
  • Can be used in automatic dosing systems
  • Available in all micron sizes
