Liquid Diamond GAF (Guaranteed Agglomerate-Free) is designed to enable users to prepare diamond slurries with the lowest possible complication and cost. It is successfully used in applications such as HDD texturing, gemstones, ceramics and metal polishing as well as optical and metallurgical applications.
Thanks to GAF technology, slurries based on Liquid Diamond produce surfaces free from scratches caused by diamond agglomerates. Liquid Diamond is the obvious choice for formulating slurries with diamond sizes in the submicron range.
The product consists of diamond powder dispersed in de-ionized water in high concentrations. To form a finished slurry, Liquid Diamond is mixed with any suitable polishing liquid and additives. For applications sensitive to water, Liquid Diamond exists also in water-free, oil-based form.
Liquid diamond is available in monocrystalline (MSY) and polycrystalline (DP) diamond types in all standard submicron sizes or tailor-made to customer specifications.
Guaranteed agglomerate-free (GAF) :
A proprietary process guarantees that all diamond is dispersed in a single particle distribution, totally free of agglomerates. This helps avoid scratched surfaces and increases the yield of finished products.
Lot-to-lot consistency :
Liquid Diamond can be made to customer requirements with very tight specifications. Advanced process control maximizes lot-to-lot consistency.
Easy slurry preparation :
Liquid Diamond is used in place of dry diamond powder to mix diamond slurries. Just blend Liquid Diamond with other slurry components – done. The critical and time-consuming wetting and dispersion of diamond powder is no longer necessary. No special equipment is needed, and slurry preparation time can be reduced considerably.
Reduce cost :
The simple slurry preparation saves time and money and yet increases the quality of the polished work piece.
