Kemox Abrasive Slurry / Slurries

Kemet offer a comprehensive range of suspension treated Abrasive Slurries where the abrasive and carrier are pre-mixed in the correct proportions, resulting in a cleaner and more efficient Lapping Process.

Kemox is a conventional abrasive slurry that has been suspension treated so that the abrasive particles do not settle out into a hard sediment in to bottom of the abrasive tank. Kemox is available in water soluble (Kemox –W) or oil soluble (Kemox-O) formulations in 5 or 20 Litres. Advantages of using Kemox include:

  • No mixing necessary (Pre-Mixed Abrasive)
  • Abrasive slurry concentration is always correct
  • Always ready to use
Environmentally friendly products - Not classified as an atmospheric pollutant as they have zero Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)

Kemox W - Our Newest Lapping Suspension

New water-based formulations have been developed so that very low Ra and Rz figures can be produced without the need for secondary lapping or polishing processes. Until now it has been almost impossible to achieve a scratch free finish when using fine alumina on a Cast Iron lapping plate, but with these new formulations, uniform scratch free finishes are easily obtainable.

This is even more of a benefit when pre lapping softer materials that need to be mirror polished. With these Kemox formulations a very fine surface can be generated prior to secondary pad polishing which reduces the polishing time needed, thus reducing any edge roll off and orange peel. Product Codes below for Kemox W, available in 3 and 6 micron.
