smartcel Silicon

 
Application The smartcel filament enriched with silicon is suitable for deburring
various materials. Depending on the requirements, different grain
sizes and silicon contents are used. The natural smartcel filament
does not melt or smudge, even at higher temperatures. The abrasive
particles are fully effective, even under low contact pressure.
Features

smartcel Silicon contains high performance silicon grain homogeneously
distributed. Thanks to the specific geometry of the grain,
deburring has been lifted to a new performance level. High temperature
resistance allows working at high speeds.

Temperature Resistance Up to 160°, no melting or smudging
Dimensional Tolerances +/- 10%
Storage Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Dry
storage at 20°, at a humidity of
40 – 60%.
Resistance Up to 60%
Dimensional Tolerances +/- 10%
Storage Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Dry
storage at 20°, at a humidity of
40 – 60%.
Resistance Good resistance towards non-polar
solvents such as oil, gasoline,
acetone and benzene and towards
acids and alkaline solutions in the
ph-range of 5 to 8.
Density 1.54 g/cm³
Environment bio-degradable
Impact The high silicon content and the rough particle surface maximizes the
amount of contact points between silicon particle and workpiece and
thus increases the material removal performance. A reduced heat
build-up at higher speeds paves the way for increasing cycle times.
Deburring with smartcel Silicon filaments opens up new performance
dimensions that up to now have only been achieved with grinding
wheels in combination with the advantages of flexible brushes.
Dimensions 0.20 – 0.70 mm, depending on the grain diameter
Standard color: gray
Grain size: K120, K180, K320
Delivery Form Hank, approximately 1050 mm
Operating Instructions Operate in a dry working environment. Possible addition of small
amounts of oil. Do not use emulsions or water cooling. Operate with
contact pressure as low as possible.
Processing Instructions Bending the filaments excessively may cause them to break.
