Silicon Carbide Lapping Film Disc

​Silicon Carbide Lapping Film

Silicon Carbide lapping films are a high-quality option for those seeking fine grinding and lapping applications. These films consist of a mylar film that has been coated with a resin containing either silicon carbide or silicon dioxide particles. The films are designed to provide excellent edge retention, making them ideal for precision work.
One of the key features of these lapping films is their use of micron graded premium abrasives. This allows for precise finishes in grades ranging from 30 to 1 micron, ensuring that your work is of the highest quality. Additionally, the films feature a precision backing that ensures uniformity and sample planarity, further enhancing the precision of your work.
Another benefit of these lapping films is their resistance to water, oil, and most solvents. This makes them ideal for use in a variety of settings, including laboratory environments. Additionally, the films are color-coded for quick identification, making it easy to find the right film for your needs.
These lapping films can be used for both encapsulated and non-encapsulated samples, providing versatility and flexibility for your work. However, it is important to note that they are not recommended for power head applications.
Overall, Silicon Carbide lapping films are an excellent choice for those seeking high-quality, precise results in their grinding and lapping work. Their use of premium abrasives, precision backing, and resistance to solvents make them a top choice for professionals in a variety of industries.
