Microdiamant appoints UK agent

Microdiamant has named Master Abrasives as its UK and Ireland representative for its range of diamond products, which are used for fine grinding, lapping and polishing applications.

Master Abrasives’ managing director Paul Batson says: “We identified diamond polishing products, such as diamond slurries and micron diamond powders, as an area which needed be added to our product range. At the same time, we were contacted by Microdiamant, who were looking for a UK partner. Microdiamant products are manufactured in Switzerland to high quality standards.”
For more than 60 years, Microdiamant has been continuously optimising and re-inventing micron diamond with customer needs as a constant focus. Microdiamant is a privately held company that distributes its products through a network of agents, with subsidiaries in approximately 20 countries across Europe, the USA and Asia. The company manufactures diamond products in all common diamond types – natural, monocrystalline, polycrystalline and nanocluster – and in sizes ranging from 18 nm up to 100 µm.
Microdiamant products available from Master Abrasives can be split into categories, the first being micron diamond powders for the superfinishing of hard materials. Micron diamond powders are offered in micron and sub-micron sizes, and in synthetic and natural diamond types.
In addition, Microdiamant offers diamond slurries for the lapping and polishing of hard materials, both in engineered and ready-to-use form. The ready-to-use diamond slurries combine precision graded micron diamond sizes with chemical formulations that are designed to offer high removal rates and surface quality. Microdiamant also provides liquid diamond GAFs, diamond compounds and grinding pads, composite polishing pads, and metallography products.
