 INTRODUCTION - DIAMOND PLATED PRODUCTS    Back to Article Index Here    Print Page
PLATED PRODUCTS:
Diamond plated products are usually a single layer of diamonds highly concentrated, and held on by a tough, durable nickel alloy.  This high concentration, usually about 140-150, enables plated products to retain their original shape and dimensions throughout its working life.  Unlike the metal or resin bond impregnated products where the diamond particles are buried in the bond, the plated product allows the diamond particles to protrude from the surface and gives a freer, faster cutting action with minimum heat generation.
