XEBEC Ceramic Stone™ FAQ

XEBEC Ceramic Stone™

XEBEC Ceramic Stone™ Meister Finish

Will it break?

The original ceramic fiber is binded with resin. It is highly resistant to breaking, cracking and chipping.

Why doesn’t the tool get clogged?

Because of its self-sharpening effect. The cutting edges are always regenerated as it is worn out.

What kind of workpieces can be machined?

Metals up to HRC57 including mold material such as NAK80, STAVAX and S45C. Use XEBEC Ceramic Stone Diamond for hard materials with HRC57 or higher (ranging from hardened steel to carbide).
See the lineup page for more details.

How do you use it?

XEBEC Ceramic Stone has grinding power on the tip.
Set the angle in relation to the workpiece surface at approximaately 5 to 45 degrees.
See the how to use page for more details.

Is it possible to use the side of the ceramic stone?

No, for the stick type, there is no grinding power on the sides. Use the tip to polish the workpiece.
For the rod type, both the tip and sides can be used.

Can it be used on vibrating tools?

Yes, it can be used with ultrasonic, pneumatic and electric tools.
*It is recommended to use XEBEC Stone Heat-Resistant when using an ultrasonic tool.
See the how to use page for more details.

Can it be used with oil applied?

Yes, it can also be used with water-soluble and oil-based polishing fluid, kerosene and other fluids. Polishing efficiency is better in wet polishing.

How can it be formed?

Use diamond disc blade or sandpaper (carbide abrasive grains) to form the tip.
