Hyperion Materials and Technologies' Borazon cubic boron nitride (CBN) is recognized as one of the greatest technological advancements for material removal. It was designed specifically for applications involving ferrous materials and is second in hardness only to diamond with twice the hardness and four times the abrasion resistance of conventional abrasives. Borazon CBN has exceptional thermal conductivity and provides improved surface integrity in the grinding of hardened tool, die, and alloy steels as well as nickel- and cobalt-based superalloys.
The family of Borazon CBN products achieves optimal performance in conjunction with a variety of bond systems. Hyperion offers numerous crystal coatings and surface treatments to enhance crystal retention and performance characteristics. These coatings were developed to improve perfromance through greater crystal retention, heat transfer, and lubricating qualities.
